Kristy Brown - Kaden Apparel Ambassador

I'm a 46 year old native Vermonter who, though a lifetime athlete, just started mountain biking in 2020! I was fortunate to have a friend lend me a bike and I was almost immediately hooked and wanted to ride as much as possible. I live in Colchester with my 10 year son Liam, husband Jon and dog Lenny. I can ride my bike from home to Sunny Hollow trail network which I try to do a few times a week during the riding season. When I'm not spending time with my family, out riding or doing other fun things, I work on the leadership team in IT for the UVM Health Network. I've been working in healthcare as a physical therapist, healthcare business consultant and project management for over 20 years.
