Hello! My name is Cat. I’ve been on Planet Earth just over three decades now and it’s been a wild life! Recently, I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science from Chatham University and am working full time at Healthy Ride – Pittsburgh’s Nonprofit Bike Share as one the bike mechanics.

I service, maintenance and repair a fleet of 500 bicycles (soon to be 700). My responsibilities include:

  • performing routine tune ups and safety checks
  • identifying faults, damage and wear
  • fixing minor repairs
  • repairing and replacing any damaged or worn-out components
  • cleaning, degreasing and lubricating bicycles and bike components
  • wheel truing (goal: wheel building)
  • fitting accessories
  • rebuilding scrapped bikes and overhauling old bikes
  • assembling new bikes, starting with just the frame

  • Continue education
  • Exercise programs
  • Fitness

  • Nutrition
  • Traveling

Anyway…Feel free to connect with me on these social media platforms:
