Q & A:
Your life story in 5 sentences
Small town girl living life to the fullest!! Born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida, so racing and motorcycles were a big part of my upbringing, and my father was a shop owner and mechanic, so cars were an even bigger part of that! I’ve somehow managed to channel my love for cars and passion for motorcycles into an awesome career, I honestly feel like I’m just living my life and that just happens to be my “job” also. Along the way, I’ve had so many amazing experiences and met some fantastic people, and the still journey continues! I think that’s 4 sentences, but now it’s 5 !
Who is your role model/hero?
My mother; she is such an amazing, empowered, and intelligent woman who has taught me so much.
If you were on a deserted island, and could only bring 3 things, what would they be?
This question immediately sends me into survival mode! Maybe I’m taking a playful question too literally, but if I was stranded on an island, I’d want to live! If given the option, I would bring a big knife, a lighter, and some type of container/bottle to hold water. My not-so-literal interpretation – a bikini, sunscreen and endless margaritas!!
New boots or new tires? Why?
This question is a tough one—in logic, boots last a lot longer than motorcycles tires. But, in addition to my motorsports addiction, I must confess I also have a massive shoe collection.
What do you do in your spare time?
I never have spare time, I have to make it! When I can, I use it to relax, catch up with friends and family, cook, all are some of my favorite activities.
