Personal information

Dorothy Lee "Dotsie" Bausch is an American cyclist, Olympic silver medalist, advocate, speaker, and the executive director of the nonprofit, Switch4Good. She is the founder of two nonprofits.

Early life[edit]

Bausch grew up in Kentucky and graduated from Villanova University with a degree in journalism.[1]

At 26 years old, toward the end of her therapy work, her therapist encouraged her to move her body again, choosing a physical activity that was not attached to a goal of fitness or weight loss. She chose cycling.[2]


Bausch was featured in the 2015 documentary Personal Gold: An Underdog Story and the 2017 documentary The Game Changers.[3]

Switch4Good is an athlete-driven nonprofit working toward a dairy-free future. The organization employs athlete stories with scientific research and outreach to help others "live better and do more" by avoiding dairy.[4]
