Hi there! I'm Jocelyn Gaudi Quarrell.
I'm the founder of the Komorebi Cycling Team, which is just one of the ways that I encourage more people to ride bicycles more often.
Some other work I've done to get more butts on bikes includes:
Marketing and Sales Director for Portland Design Works, a manufacturer of "beautiful, simple gear for everyday cycling"
A PMBI Certified Mountain Bike Instructor
President of the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance, the country's first thru-bikepacking trail
Board member for Northwest Trail Alliance, an organization dedicated to creating, enhancing and protecting riding opportunities in NW Oregon and SW Washington
Regional Advisor for Bikepacking Roots
Previously, Marketing and Member Care manager for Alta Bicycle Share (now known as Motivate International), which has launched and operates bike share systems in the US, Canada and Australia
Previously, Bike Commute Challenge Coordinator for the Bicycle Transportation Alliance
Previously, Board member for Friends of Gateway Green, working to create Portland's first off-road cycling park
Previously, co-host of the KBOO Bike Show
Feel free to review my full resume here.
