In addition to being an Idaho State Pump Track Champion and building her own mountain bike training facility in Sun Valley, Idaho, she’s an avid hiker and snowboarder and recently took up ice hockey and curling.

“Chums is the perfect fit to my active lifestyle and will greatly fuel my creative side,” said Biondi. “I love the brand’s diverse product line and functional lifestyle accessories for numerous outdoor activities. There’s a lot of exciting products in the pipeline for later this year and 2017 so I’m looking forward to bringing my ideas and experience to the table.”
