Anita is an all-mountain matador who divides her time between the mountains, the internet and remote corners of the world, leading global humanitarian crisis projects.
A former mountain bike competitor (and one-time schoolyard red rover champion), Anita was recently named one of the World’s Most Adventurous Women by Men’s Journal Magazine. She’s also a multiple award-winning humanitarian, aspiring astronaut, electrical and environmental engineer, filmmaker, climber and snowsports aficionado.
Anita still enjoys jumping in the occasional pro-level competition. When not catching air, she’s one of the bike industry’s most in-demand coaches, having helped thousands of beginners to elite racers reach their biking goals. As the creator and head coach of Bike Fest Series, Anita is committed to removing barriers to the outdoors: socioeconomic, gender, race, cultural, language, athletic and geographical.
A frequent keynote speaker, Anita’s bike clinics and talks have been featured in numerous global publications and media channels all over the world.
