I live in San Diego with my husband, Adrian, and my two German Shepherds, Sadie and Benny. I love to read, travel, eat good food and be outside.

I love social dancing and take a swing class every Monday.
I was lucky enough to be asked by Kia to navigate for the amazing Verena! The Rebelle is always such a fun challenge and a reset for your brain and priorities.

I’ve been in the automotive industry for 20 years, competing in Formula Drift & Rally America and teaching performance driving for OEM programs. I love the adventure of life, traveling with my husband, and living with the aloha spirit.

Life is not about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.
In the movie Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift, I was the girl who wrote my phone number down to “Han”, after he did donuts around our Skyline in the middle of the street.
The Rebelle was on my bucket list since the first year, so when Kia asked me to drive for their team in 2021, there was no hesitation. I love being a part of it because every year I get to connect with amazing ladies, push myself to a new level, enjoy the scenery and be completely present in the journey. I always come back a better version of myself because of it. Can’t wait to team with Susie this year!
I’m inspired by people who break boundaries to make a difference in the world, and those who push their limits to achieve something seemingly impossible, then discover a world of possibility.
