Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, I now call Whistler my home. I have spent the last 15 years traveling the globe as a professional mountain bike athlete and brand ambassador – I have represented Canada at the Downhill World Championships, been in countless ad campaigns and magazine articles and played a pivotal role with the introduction of women’s specific mountain bike events.  In addition, I have an established reputation as a first class mountain bike coach and have contributed to the success of many mountain bike riders and athletes.

After obtaining my degree in Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia and getting my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, I began training recreational, elite and aspiring athletes of all disciplines.

Currently, I still train all ages of athletes in any speciality, with my main focus on training and coaching the youth mountain bike athlete.

The character, skill and personality of Katrina inspires the next generation of cyclists and promotes the sport well beyond simple race results. I can’t say enough great things about her coaching and her support at the youth level, which has made all those involved cyclist’s for life. It is clear that she loves what she does and that the joy of simply riding a bike has inspired many of them. Well done!
