A lover of mountain bikes, cyclocross, wild spaces, and fresh air, Serena lives and trains in Bend OR. She races for the LIV | Giant Co-Factory Team; with a focus on endurance mountain bike and cyclocross racing.
After receiving a Bachelors degree in Financing and Marketing from the University of Portland, spending a number of years as a competitive ultra-runner, and completing a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, Serena and her husband, Ben, found themselves in the high desert of central Oregon. Here she was first introduced to mountain biking, and was instantly captivated.
Finding balance between life, work and training isn’t always easy and Serena understands these challenges. She will work with the realities of restricted time schedules, short days, bad weather, and family and work obligations to help you reach your training and racing goals.
Serena is confident that “to accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” –Anatole France
