Chris and Emily are a mother-daughter team who have competed in the Rally since 2018 and are back for their fourth Rally in 2021! Chris is a semi-retired aerospace engineering executive who co-formed a company from scratch 17 years ago that designs and builds composite structures for the aerospace industry. She assisted in completing the fairing that protects the crew module for the Orion spacecraft, which will take humans to Mars. As announced by NASA, it will eventually take Americans, including the first woman, to the Moon by 2024. They recently sold the business and Chris is now starting another engineering firm, yet this time it is all woman-owned! When she isn’t plotting checkpoints, she enjoys backpacking, pickleball, book clubs and adventuring. Emily is a molecular biologist at a company working towards antibody therapeutics for immunocompromised patients. Her work revolves around cancer therapies, including a rapid-response COVID therapeutic intended to help patients who struggle to make their own antibodies against the virus. She enjoys international travel, surfing, boats, backpacking, good coffee, petting all dogs, and Maui. This year, Chris and Emily retired Emily’s 2018 Jeep Wrangler Willys that was driven in the last three Rallys. In 2021, they will be representing the Bone Stock and Electrified designations with their 2021 4xe Hybrid Rubicon Jeep, with Rebelle blue accents.
