Michelle Patterson (‘Hydration Queen’) is a Content and Program Manager at Dirty Freehub. Most recently, she was a Customer Success leader at Dropbox, where she spent 5 years of her career working with enterprise customers. She began her career as an IT consultant at Microsoft. However, Michelle made a big change in early 2021 where she took a pause from her career to travel in a converted sprinter van, gravel biking and hiking across the US. She manages a social media platform to document her travels, @gautvanlife.
Michelle began biking in 2019 when she rode 200 miles from Seattle to Portland just weeks after purchasing a road bike. She switched to gravel in 2020, enjoying the opportunity to get away from cars and experience more scenery. You’ll find her on her Canyon Grail AL.
