Dogs – it’s all about the dogs! DJ is a professional dog trainer, she has trained and participated in K9 Search and Rescue, and trained Peg’s 3 dogs (introducing the dogs to amazing sport of dock diving.)
Once Peg learned of DJ’s military experience she thought DJ might want to spend 8 days in the desert. Similar likes and interests have made us friends and now a team off to tackle the Rebelle! We have trained together in Ridgecrest and Glamis this past year.
I am a sailor, mountaineer, and an avid adventurer always seeking new challenges. The bonds forged through shared exploration experiences inspire me.

I love playing cards (Cribbage, Hearts, etc) and I have hit the Wordle word on the first try twice :-)
I have been to several training activities over the past two years and enjoy learning new skills and the camaraderie of Rebelle participants. I look forward to making it to the starting line this year!
I have a strong connection to nature and a thirst for adventure. The challenges and beauty of the natural world provide a sense of awe and motivation to explore new horizons.

Lots of great adventures over the decades! Various mountaineering adventures (including Kilamanjaro), tactician aboard race sailboats in the Caribbean, created the Caribbean Mother & Daughter Cribbage Cruise, and 4x4 training with Barlow Adventures — it seems every day is an adventure!
I live by the Seven Core Army Values that I believe will give me an advantage in the Rebelle Rally. Underneath all of that lies a serious resume of badassery, ask me about it.

“Do What Has To Be Done”
I have always been a competitor and mainly team sports. I compete with my German Shorthaired Pointer dog, in dock diving and she has qualified for Nationals multiple times.
The Rebelle is an experience to start a new chapter in my life. I believe it will give me the extraversion that the military gave me.
Selfless service, it helps us connect with others, makes us feel good, and in return we bond each time we help each other out.

My three combat military deployments. In many ways they were my best and worst of times. I wouldn’t trade anything that I learned through my experiences.
