A graduate of Northeastern University, Colleen worked at Mitre Corp. as a Networks & Data Systems Engineer for the last 15 years. Colleen was a member of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Her love of bike touring led her to become a member of the 7 Hills Wheelmen and the Bicycle Chairperson for the AMC Worcester chapter. In 2011 she initiated the first Touring Fundamentals Seminar to share her love of touring with others. One of her last tours was the 375 mile C&O/GAP tour that runs from Washington DC to Pittsburgh, PA.
