A Jill of all trades and a master of none, Ann is a weekend warrior and backcountry bon vivant who likes to hike, ski and paddle but mostly bikepack in the mountains of western Colorado. Originally from the UK, Ann lives and works in the Roaring Fork Valley, from which she aims to explore as much of the wild and beautiful places of her local geography as possible. She works a full-time job while maximizing pre- and post-work microadventures. She loves to ride out from work into the mountains, find a sweet camp spot, cook dinner, watch the sunset, gaze at the stars, sleep, make coffee, then ride back to work at sunrise. The weekends are spent deep in the Elk Mountains, where devising new routes, truly connecting with nature, and returning with memories, pictures and words to inspire others, are what makes her tick.

Which of Stio's values personally align to you?

Balance is Key. Working a full-time job, it is important for me to maintain a good work/life balance. Some days I am lucky enough to get in a pre-work dawn patrol, a post-work bike ride or even a mid-week microadventure. And on the days when the office requires the majority of my time, I still try to carve out half an hour to spend out in nature. Even if that just means parking further away from the office and walking or cycling in.

How do you create balance in your daily life?

See above.

What is a bucket list activity you have yet to do or a place that you have yet to go?

Bikepack the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.

What is your go-to workout music?

I love the sounds of nature :)

What is a piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to pursue a life of mountain sports and adventures?

Follow your passion and just do you.
