About Our Guest:
After concluding a prolific professional cycling career that produced a medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games, eight US national championships, two Pan American gold medals, and a world record, Dotsie Bausch has become a powerful influencer for plant-based eating for athletes and non-athletes alike. Named by Choose Veg as one of the “Top 20 Badass Veg Women Who Are Making History,” she utilizes her degree in plant-based nutrition to inform her impassioned messages as an advocate on behalf of animals.
Never one to shy away from facing staggering odds – just like she did in the Olympics while riding for Team USA, whose unlikely and triumphant story is chronicled in the Netflix documentary “Personal Gold” – her latest initiative is the disruption of the dairy milk industry through an athlete-driven movement called Switch4Good. The inaugural Switch4Good television commercial features six Olympians from four different countries and proves that cow’s milk is not part of a high-performance diet. The ground-breaking commercial aired on NBC during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games closing ceremonies and on ABC during the Academy Awards broadcast. View the commercial at https://Switch4Good.org. Bausch is one of the stars of the upcoming film The Game Changers (https://gamechangersmovie.com/), which chronicles the story of the world’s most dangerous myth. Directed by Academy Award-winner Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by Oscar-winner James Cameron, The Game Changers will be released to worldwide audiences in late fall 2018.
Long before embodying radiant health and becoming an influential game-changer, Bausch struggled for years with severe eating disorders and a recreational drug habit, that combined, led to a suicide attempt. It was during her recovery that she discovered her gift and love for the bike.
Bausch speaks passionately around the world, spreading her message about the numerous benefits – humane, nutritional, and environmental – of plant-based eating. Her popular TEDx Talk, “Olympic Level Compassion,” has garnered over 175,000 views and has been a catalyst of change for thousands of people.
