Today’s episode features two mountain biking enthusiasts who are passionate about getting more girls and women on bikes through the Girls Riding Together (GRiT) program with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). My guests are Emily Green, the National GRiT Program Manager and Christine Vaughan, the Kentucky Interscholastic League GRiT Coordinator. Emily has a lifelong passion for cycling and outdoor adventure, and loves nothing more than to help others challenge themselves and get outside on their own adventures. Emily started her professional journey in outdoor environmental education, has decades of experience in nonprofit, including co-founding Fit Moms for Life. She’s thrilled to combine her expertise in nonprofit program development and coaching women with her passion for outdoor adventure and mountain biking in her current role. Christine Vaughan is the Aquatics Director for the Greater Louisville Southeast Family YMCA and Director of Operations and Creative Services for Louisville Family Fun. She has a background in nonprofit management, fundraising, marketing, and logistics. She is a Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana Board member and troop leader. Riding is her passion and introducing new people to the sport keeps her going.
