As an avid runner and cyclist, Timberly has developed strong ties to both the running and cycling communities in Vancouver. She is the Vancouver Sun newspaper “Ask an Expert” panel member – providing injury prevention advice to runners and cyclists via the newspaper as well as to local running and cycling clubs throughout the city.
