Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec Canada, Angie was always encouraged by her Parents to do whatever she set her mind to despite having congenital birth defects, the most noticeable being her right arm and hand. The word "can't" does not exist in her vocabulary and she has always found a way to achieve my goals.
In an effort to demonstrate that people should not be judged based on appearance, she used her AC/DC Tribute Band called BARE RUMP to share her message -"WHY DISCOURAGE WHEN YOU CAN ENCOURAGE". Using a prosthetic, she played lead guitar and was "Angus Young".
She now spreads her message with her classic rock band LEFTY AND THE GOONS and in the world of motorcycling.
Angie rides her motorcycles (one at a time of course haha ) with 1 (left) hand as a result of being born with congenital birth defects which mostly impacted her right arm and hand.
Despite being intrigued by motorcycles at a very young age, she only started riding her own after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2014. Angie had a few hurdles to jump prior to riding her own bike which included:
- Finding a shop to partner with who would modify her motorcycle(s) allowing her to ride safely and comfortably
- Finding a riding school that would allow her to use her own motorcycle for the training and subsequent evaluation
Since becoming a part of the motorcycle community as a rider in 2017, Angie can honestly say that this is the first time in her life that she was not judged or ostracized as she had sometimes been as a youngster. Her tales of determination are delivered with a sense of humour and honesty as her objective is always to help others believe in themselves and their abilities.
Angie believes that there is always a positive - sometimes you just have to dig a bit deeper to find it.
As a result of her preferred motorcycle not being available in Canada, she imported her 2 Honda CTX DCTs from Bob Weaver Motorsports in North Tonawanda.
Angie have spoken at events sponsored by the Canadian Cancer Society, the Breast Cancer Foundation Of Canada and Learning Curves Rider Training School, Etobicoke, Ontario. Angie has also shared her story at a variety of motorcycle shows and rallies including the Spring (Toronto) Motorcycle Show, April 2018 and 2019, the Toronto Ontario Motorcycle Show in January, 2019, and the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Rally in Paris Ontario, June 2019.
Angie will be appearing at the Americade rally next June 2020 where the will have 2 speaking engagements.
Angie is in the process of writing a book to share her story in addition to working on a short film for submission to the 2020 Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival.
