Originally from South Florida, Sylvie relocated to the Twin Cities in 2017 for her first job as a mechanical engineer. She embraced the change and quickly found a home in the vibrant cycling community. As her love of bikes and the cycling community grew, it opened her eyes to the possibilities for a future where cities are built to accommodate communities of people instead of cars.

Now a Saint Louis Park resident, Sylvie works as a substitute teacher and an outdoor experiences guide. As someone who believes the climate crisis is the biggest threat facing all peoples, human and non-human, Sylvie is determined to bring people together so that we can get to know one another and take care of each other and the planet.
