1. Tell us a bit about your hometown. Where do you insist on taking out of town guests?

I'm from Milwaukee, WI and I currently live in the Riverwest neighborhood. It's known for community and social activism, murals and community gardens as well as alternative food options, Wisconsin dive bars, and coffee shops. I would insist that out of town guests experience the Riverwest 24, a 24-hour community bicycle event. The event inspires biking in an urban environment while bringing people together for support, awareness, and showing everyone what makes Riverwest an amazing area. The event informally known as “The People’s Holiday.” Neighbors cheer on the riders into the wee hours of the morning. It’s truly a magical experience filled with cookouts, music, high-fives, and even race tattoos (yes, really tattoos). 


2. Where is your favorite place to take your Po Campo?

I have two Po Campo beauties: the messenger bag and the handle bar bag. The messenger bag is my everyday work bag. It’s super functional, and BONUS, it’s cute! I love using the handlebar bag for short neighborhood rides as well as long training rides. I never knew bike accessories could be so cute! Style is important, but so is functionality! I’ve found both in my Po Campo bags. 


3.  A favorite tip (or two) about how you incorporate mindfulness and healthy habits into your daily life?

Biking to work everyday is my number one healthy habit. Incorporating biking hasn’t been easy. I was fearful of how to make it into a routine. But once I did, I realized my daily commute offered solitude and reflection time that wasn’t found elsewhere in my day. Sure, I try to eat healthy, go to yoga, and get enough rest—you know, do all the recommended healthy life things. When life is too busy to focus on these (which is, like, all the time) I look to my daily commute for mental and physical health benefits.
