What sport/s do you participate in?

ATV Desert

What do you ride/drive for your sport?!

Yamaha YFZ450R

How long have you been competing in your sport? What got you into it?!

This is my ninth year of racing and I honestly got into racing after watching the jr KTM kids at a supercross event. I had been riding in the sand dunes and wanted to try racing

As a female in this industry, what are some challenges you face?

Constant downplaying, there are so many people looking to put females down while racing not only against other women but especially against men. Also one of the biggest challenges is getting the recognition and exposure as a female rider. To help grow the sport and bring the same sponsors as men get to the female side!

What are some of your other Hobbies?!

I love photography, camping, hanging out with my friends and playing music

How were you introduced to Off Road Vixens?

I saw their clothing at an event when I was just starting in racing. They had a pink sweatshirt and I loved it. Since then I have been fortunate enough to be a sponsored athlete.

What are your Short Term and Long Term Goals?

Short term goal is to continue to get better at my corner speed, my jumping lines and landing.
Long term goal is to become the youngest female professional ATV rider in the country.

What are some of your accomplishments?

I pride myself in my consistency over the course of a season. I have been able to win five championships and place top three overall in all but one season.

What is your favorite thing about competing in your sport?

The friendships and relationships with sponsors. I also love the adrenaline I get when lining up on the start gate. The only thing better then the start line is winning at the finish line.

Where do you see yourself in this industry in 5 years?

I see myself competing for national championships as a professional rider. If that doesn’t work out I plan on either working for one of the companies that has sponsored my racing so I am still involved with the sport and am able to still race and enjoy the entire race family!

What words of advice do you have for other women and girls getting involved in racing?

Don’t be afraid of racing. Challenge yourself to be better and never let people tell you a girl doesn’t belong in racing. You will always be under a microscope so just let your racing do the taking and don’t get sensitive to what you may hear. Use the negative comments as fuel to be even better!

What is something that we don't know about you?

I am extremely shy and keep to myself most of the time. It takes me awhile before I let people get into my world.
