Joele grew up skiing, wakeboarding, and playing basketball in Northern California, but found mountain biking after moving to BC to attend University of Victoria. She is a former Elite CX and XC racer who now races CX, XC, and Enduro on a casually competitive level.  She has been active in volunteering for local CX races on the island and has experienced through her own life the power and importance of sport and community.  She joined RLG in 2021 to support bringing sport and community together through the RLG mentorship program.

In her day job, Joele is a sales rep for Santa Cruz, Juliana, and Cervelo and spends her free time (if she isn’t on a bike) snowboarding, surfing, or planning her next adventure.
