Although the cycling journey in support of PD began in 2009, the real journey to support two family members living with Parkinson’s Disease began long before. Wanting to make a difference beyond the daily talks with my dad and uncle, I joined a group of cyclists dedicated to creating awareness and raising funds and hope for Parkinson’s Disease. In August 2010, and for a cause close to my heart, I committed to supporting and raising awareness for Parkinson’s research through the Just Giver for Parkinson’s fundraising Tour and completed a 10- day, 1354 km cycle through BC, Canada with the JustGiver4PD Cycling group raising over $90,000 for PD Research. Here we are in 2021 and 11 years later the fight continues through the inspiration of those we met along the way and continue to meet daily.

On June 21st, 2019, we rode 400km in one day from Kelowna to Vancouver, BC to raise awareness and funds to continue to support those living with Cancer. In 2013, 2014 and 2015, I cycled for colleagues, friends and family that continue to ignite those around them to this day. 2019 was for my niece Marissa. Love you so much, We did it!!
These people and the many family, friends and colleagues, symbolize and represent the many faces that are living or have been touched by cancer and are the reason I rode 400km in one day to choose and try and make a difference. With your support we will make an impact, inspire and be part of the voice that says… We have had enough!
After 15 yrs of Ride2Survive, 2019 was the final year of the 400km journey. Look for the 2021 updates and how we can support my all those who say I have had enough!!

The Hunger Project - Ethical Coach
It is with great excitement to announce I have been selected to join a team of global coaches to provide Leadership Coaching to those impacted by hunger.
Top-down, aid-driven charity models fail to create lasting change in the lives of those in need. To achieve a sustainable solution to hunger, we need to flip that model on its head, and afford those living in hunger access to the education and tools needed to end hunger for good.
