What sport/s do you participate in?
How long have you been involved?
What do you like to do in addition to your sport?
I’m currently studying for my Associates in Psychology, which I’m receiving next semester. I work part time at a mechanic shop called Off Again Auto Service and Repair. I also love doing anything outdoors, when it’s not competition time I love to go up in the mountains and do more scenic trails and camping!! I love to do anything creative whether that’s drawing, painting, expressing my style. I mean my hair is neon pink lol. Hanging out with friends and family is huge for me. I also love music and love to read.
What type of terrain is sport done on ie. (dirt track, drag strip, circle track, course, mud, snow)
dirt/rock course on rock obstacles. The courses change in size but you can see the whole course in one spot.
How often and what do you do to practice?
Every chance I get lol. I live less than 10 minutes away from where we hosted the W.E Rock Grand Nationals this year, so I'm out breaking my rig all the time, (I'm kidding I'm so thankful for when I don’t lol). Easy answer would be I prevarication very often, at least every week, I go out to the canyon and just have fun getting more seat time in my cars
What series or events do you participate in?
W.E. Rock Rock Crawling Competition
What classes do you compete in?
I’ve won the western series two years in a row for Sportsman B and I just moved up to the Pro Unlimited class.
What are your short term goals?
Make podium in the pro unlimited class and to receive my associates. I am also building my daily driver at the moment so hopefully that will be coming soon as well!!
Where do you see your future in this industry?
I see that wherever I end up, I’m happy, meeting and enjoying the time with the people I have common interests with… Its so uncertain what can happen, I had no idea I would already be in the pro class of W.E. Rock so the future is extremely bright but I'm not sure what it in-tells.

What else should our readers know about you?

What are your words of wisdom to other females in the industry that are reading this?
In this industry, females are overlooked and there are many times where you won’t feel appreciated, accepted or noticed. Just know that it’s hard for most of those men to accept that a female is doing as good or better than them. Stay humble and stay the way you are even through what others will say, you’ll find the right crowds of people. As a female in the industry, I know that you have to be doing as good or better than the people you’re against to get congratulated or taken seriously.
