Chris and Emily are a mother-daughter team from San Diego who have always dreamed of owning a Jeep Wrangler. In 2018, they pulled the trigger and purchased a new Willys Wheeler with the intention of competing in the Rebelle for the first time. Both Benzie ladies enjoy camping, hiking, backpacking, and generally exploring the outdoors, and are excited to combine the nerdiness of old-school navigation with the adventure of Rebelle! Chris is an aerospace engineer, co-founder and CFO of San Diego Composites, and is very excited to continue her path of strong female leadership into the rally. She hopes her experience in physics and math will make her a master navigator in the desert! In her free time Chris enjoys reading, planning travel trips, painting, and planting succulents. Emily recently graduated in June 2018 from UC Davis, and is now employed at a drug-discovery biotechnology company in San Francisco working with antibody research in immunodeficient patients. At her previous job, she got the chance to work with manatee DNA in order to help manatee conservation efforts. She enjoys international travel, surfing, cooking, trying new IPAs, and playing with every dog she sees.
