#206 – Giggle Watts

Making up Team Giggle Watts are Driver, Verena Mei & Navigator, Tana White. Verena has been in the automotive industry for 15-years working with OEMs as a performance driving instructor & product specialist. She raced professionally in Rally America, Formula Drift & Time Attack. In between stunt driving projects Verena hosts a live Twitch show for Xbox, is a Social Media Manager for an esports league, and a competitive sim racer. Always looking for a new adventure, she can’t wait for the experience of a lifetime in her first Rebelle Rally! Tana is a wife, mom of 4-year old twin boys, occupational therapist and home health and hospice manager. Her skills in multi-tasking, prioritizing and making it through the trials of the day with patience and the ability to quickly analyze the options before her make Tana a natural navigator. She enjoys the outdoors and exploring the pacific northwest of her roots and the trails of CO, where her off-road adventures truly began. Tana competed in the inaugural 2016 Rebelle, returning in 2019 & 2020, making this her fourth time navigating through dirt and sand. She swore she’d return to the Rebelle when her boys were five but the amazing community that is the Rebelle, the feelings of accomplishment when crossing the finish line, the skills that translate to everyday life and wanting to show her boys what Mom is capable of brought her back three times in her boys’ short, four-year-old lives. What makes this year’s Rebelle new and exciting is it being Tana’s first time competing in the X-Cross division, and further more, the Electrified designation. Always stay vulnerable and open to new experiences!
