Krista has always enjoyed playing outside, whether she was horseback riding, hiking or riding around on her beach cruiser. In 2011 she discovered the joys of mountain biking – a sport that allowed her to combine all of her favorite activities into one!
Krista was quickly hooked on mountain biking and not long after, found herself wanting to help others on the bike. Krista was a natural instructor and began hosting beginner skills clinics in Santa Cruz and offering guided tours to visitors from around the globe.
These days, Krista stays busy mentoring young riders through the Little Bellas Program and continues to ride in new places as often as possible. When not inspiring others on the bike, you’ll find Krista camping, kayaking, fishing with her boyfriend or traveling to new destinations. If that didn’t keep her busy enough, she’s also a full-time student working towards a Business Administration Degree and the mother of 2 adult kids.
Krista is a certified IMBA level 2 instructor and excited to obtain additional certifications through PMBI this year – as she says – you can never stop learning!
