I have been involved with BMX and this club for the past 13 years, when my eight-year-old son developed a love for BMX.
I have held a position on the Board for the past twelve years; I have been the Volunteer Coordinator, Vice President, and President for six years previously somewhere in between. I bring many years of experience to this Club and the Board.
For this term, as President, I would like to focus on sharing knowledge with all of you, teaching our volunteers everything and anything BMX related, continue to promote the sport of BMX and to continue to improve and grow our club.
You will often find me at the track volunteering my time, on race nights you will find me in the best spot of the facility; out on the track, most likely announcing the races.

This is my 25th season with MHBMX. I started off volunteering for bingos with my brother, the following year I was bingo chairperson and within a few years from that I was club secretary. I am currently track operator and club secretary for Medicine Hat as well as BEM operator and treasurer for Alberta BMX. I am also BEM and moto building instructor for Alberta BMX. It has been my pleasure serving in these capacities for all these years and I look forward to doing so in the future.
My sister was part of BMX for 5 years before I joined, which she needed me because she was going to Lethbridge for University. I started as a Bingo volunteer. From there I became and still am Bingo Chairperson, secretary for Alberta BMX, treasurer for Medicine Hat BMX. I served several years on the local Bingo board as director and treasurer. I received my Provincial A level commissaire 4 years ago, Provincial B forever and turned down National level A because didn't want to leave the province. There isn't a thing I would not help or volunteer for. Thank you to my dear sister for introducing me to the sport of BMX!!!!
My son joined BMX last year. We were quickly accepted, and found places to be involved as a family. But watching all the fun he was having, we couldn't let him do it all alone again. This year, both my boys, my husband and I will get on the track! I have enjoyed the opportunities to volunteer with the club last year, and am excited to join the board for my first time, and continue helping however I can.
2018 is my third year as a BMX mom, and first year on the board of directors as the social media director. I look after our Facebook page, and I am also working on our presence in the community as well as with other BMX clubs. My 2 oldest boys have their memberships this year, and my youngest will be hitting the track as a strider. We look forward to meeting all the new members and their families, as well as growing friendships with all of our returning riders!
Newest member of the board but a lifer for BMX. Nick started racing very young, left the sport in 1997 and then returned several years ago with his daughter Hallie and son Easton. He loves the sport and was very excited that his kids showed interest. But Nick is not a side line parent, he continues to race and volunteers in areas of coaching and track. He is a great mentor for the sport.
Justin is new to the executive in 2018 and has been involved with the club since his son Nixon began to ride in 2015. He has been a part of our novice program since the 2018 season and assists with provincial riders. Justin brings a wealth of knowledge from his involvement in basketball, coaching players from ages 5-15 in the community and junior high school. He has a degree in elementary education and has been teaching since 2012.
