In 2018, we first met while both co-oping at TMNA PE in KY. After graduating, we were hired on as full-time engineers in different sub-groups. Sam and Becky (who are also competing again this year with Toyota PE) extended the exciting opportunity to us to compete this year! Training together in Ridgecrest and Glamis was really eye-opening for communication and honing in on the basics. As Rebelle Rally rookies, we are excited to represent Toyota PE and inspire more women to compete next year!
Work ethic, a positive outlook, my team and my family are what drive me toward my goals. Every day, I strive to be a team player that others can rely on and continuously improve myself.

I am not what happens to me; I am what I choose to become.
Back in 2014, I attended the KY Governor's School for the Arts for Visual Art, which was an incredible experience.
I had been involved with Toyota PE Motorsports back when I was a co-op, which is where I first met Becky (who was on the first PE Rebelle team last year and someone I really admire). Previously before moving back to KY, I worked full-time in TX, which is where I was introduced to off-roading out in Hill Country. Hearing from Sam and Becky that there was an intersection between these two things plus an added challenge of navigation really peaked my interest! I really want to prove to myself that I can complete anything that I set my mind to and set reasonable expectations.
Every day at Toyota, I'm really inspired seeing people intentionally share their wealth of knowledge, support collaboratively, work hard through tough situations and step outside of their comfort zones.

Being able to see my nieces and nephews learn and grow has been such a joyous aspect of my life.
I love learning new skills and making new friends. I am always on an adventure and keep a positive attitude no matter the situation.

I have composed over 30 songs on the piano.
I first learned about Rebelle through a coworker that I look up to. She competed for the first time last year and hearing her passion for the Rebelle and off-roading sparked a passion in me. I love being in nature and want to develop the skills to explore it safely but adventurously. I also want to continue building and contributing to a network of strong and inspiring women.
I am Christian, so my greatest inspiration comes from Christ. He is my strongest support network, followed by my family and closest friends. The people that surround me are a big inspiration, and the natural beauty of the world we live in.
