Co-founder and instructor for We Are All Mechanics (WAAM), India once worked as a bicycle mechanic in Madison, WI. She is an avid cyclist, using her many bikes for year-round commuting, off-road forays, touring, and general enjoyment.
India was pleasantly surprised when she began working as an assembler at a bike shop; she discovered that the mechanical knowledge that mechanics possess is actually a learned skill set!
India was disappointed that there were so few fellow women working on bicycles and decided she would like to share what she has learned becoming a bike mechanic, woodworker, and scientist with other women. She finds that co-teaching the WAAM series is a perfect outlet for this.
Aside from teaching WAAM, India loves being a new mom and has a PhD in Zoology from UW-Madison. She enjoys using her skills in a multi-disciplinary approach to learning and teaching.
