"For my first two years of professionally racing, I was a member of Team TIBCO, and am currently on Exergy Team TWENTY12 (formerly sponsored by Peanut Butter & Co.) I raced for the USA National Team that won the Giro Donne, and Tour of New Zealand. I wore the yellow jersey at Nature Valley Grand Prix, after winning the time trial, and I have been on the podium at US Elite Time Trial Nationals for all 3 years of my professional career. I won the overall at the Merco Cycling classic, and the Sprinters Jersey at Ronde van Drenthe World Cup. I represented the USA at the Pan American Games in 2011, but a crashed before the competition which limited my performance as well as stalled my 2012 season.
Exergy Team TWENTY12 is a professional women’s cycling team that believes in fostering the development of riders for the World Championships and the Olympics. I look forward to the future."
