We started training for the Rebelle Rally in April and partnered up in June after bonding over driving drills, homesteading and lots of laughter in the truck. While we work in different parts of the business on opposite sides of the country, we’ve connected through our intense sense of competition and passion for defying expectations.

This was my 12th year attending San Diego Comic-Con International -- yes, I dressed up all four days!
I truly love learning, developing new skills and defying expectations. When I heard Rivian was gearing up for another year of Rebelle, I was all in. Growing up in the desert, I have so much love for how beautiful and unforgiving the landscape is. Rebelle has been the perfect opportunity to challenge my skills, contribute to the off-road community and show how just capable women are. Partnering with Rachel has made it the best adventure and we're excited to finally put our training into practice!

I’ve had many adventures: being the only child in an “RV family,” moving to New York City, being the first in my family to attend college. My boyfriend and I recently drove Iceland’s Ring Road in 5 days. My (almost) two years at Rivian has been a great adventure so far – I’ve grown my career, made new connections that will last a lifetime and become a Rebelle all in one place!

I’ve lived for at least 2 years in 6 states.
I first heard about the Rebelle Rally in 2022 through my job at Rivian and became an instant fangirl and follower. When the opportunity arose for me to throw my name in the hat, I did so with feverish glee. I had never been to a desert before and did not believe I had any sense of direction, but training with my partner Kelly has been an incredible experience. I have gained skills that give me the freedom to explore the planet safely, responsibly, and independently. We make such a great team! I'm grateful to have met her through this journey and can’t wait to see how we perform.
