Kirsten has a background in sustainability, with a Masters in environmental science from the University of Melbourne and specializations in renewable energy, international development, and policy. After a career in energy consulting, Kirsten became immersed in the motorcycling scene through multiple endeavors: She is the Founder of Engines for Change, an organization that mobilizes motorcyclists to get involved in charity work. She is also an advocate for women’s empowerment through her work on the Leadership Board of Women Riders Now. She is a community builder through her work with the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and the MotoSocial, and she is a documentary filmmaker, as well as a part-time industry journalist, and a Judge Panelist for the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival. Kirsten loves Rally for Rangers work because it is a seamless combination of the values she holds dear: environmental health, community engagement, sustainable development, and of course motorcycles. Kirsten rides a Triumph Street Triple, a Yamaha FJ09, a Kawasaki Versys, and any demo or loaner bike she can get her hands on.
