“I raced bikes in college. After college, I was planning on going to massage school when I met Brian Doege (who used to be a soigneur for the team) at a race. He convinced me to drive with him across the country for a race. Later I went to massage school, and as soon as I graduated, he hired me. Right after graduation, I went to team camp. I had no idea what I was getting into; I had never even massaged anyone outside of school yet! Ty Magner was my first massage. Hopefully I did pretty good!

“I love being a soigneur. I love helping the athletes … watching them compete and succeed. It’s also a lot of fun to travel to different parts of the country.”
