Where do you see your future in this industry?

In the future I don't see myself ever stepping away. Even if I am broken or taking time off when the time comes to start a family, I know I will still be hanging around even if its just supporting or sponsoring other riders a bike to ride! I've been around all kinds of motorsports since I was born whether I was a spectator or participant and will continue to pass down the fun life my dad raised me around.

What else should our readers know about you?

I started riding dirtbikes later in life then most I compete with. I actually grew up riding quads, racing go carts, and spectating sprint car racing and various dirtbike events. My dad and I lost everything even our house and toys when I was in high school due to the economy and then I was rear ended/ hit and run by a drunk driver doing 50+ mph after graduation and turning it all around to somehow be a positive. I had to work hard to make basic ends meet/ pay off medical bills despite having a broken back at 17. I eventually changed jobs (but also worked a second job) when I was 21 starting as a receptionist at a brand new dealership with no experience, worked up the ladder, and am now the top advisor of a very successful service department at the same company. Because of the hard work, I was eventually able to afford to purchase my own bikes and fulfill my childhood dreams of being able to race!

What are your words of wisdom to other females in the industry that are reading this?

Mind set is everything! Don't let the fear of failing or mistakes discourage you. Keep pushing and learning. Never be afraid to ask for pointers or to take a class. Give back and help others/ new riders out when it comes time. Always wear your proper riding gear! Most importantly- work hard, play harder!
