An all mountain matador hailing from Whistler, B.C Anita divides her time between the mountains, the internet and a variety of questionable international locations. A former slopestyle and slalom competitor ( and former 20 year old….) Anita still enjoys jumping into the occasional pro race. One of the industry’s most in demand coaches, she’s helped thousands of people, from elite racers to beginners reach their biking goals. Head coach and organizer of some of the largest women’s bike festivals, Anita is committed to making mountain biking more accessible to everyone. She has represented a number of international sponsors as an athlete and when she’s not catching air, she’s an award winning humanitarian, engineer, astronaut candidate and investigative documentarian. In the off-season Anita is usually found in remote corner of the world (where she’s forced to switch up her bike for wheelbarrow as preferred mode of transit…) working on global social impact projects. Her travels have taught her that the best defense against bike thieves is a bike box labeled “ RADIOACTIVE WASTE”
A frequent keynote speaker, Anita is featured in Red Bull Media’s upcoming film “ Project Wild Women “ for her pioneering role in gravity sports. Her sell out clinics are popping up all over the world, so keep your eyes peeled for one in your town!
