#145 – Team Fast ‘n Curious

Fast ‘n Curious Offroad exists as a vehicle to inspire women to have more courage. Courage means having a dream or desire, and taking that first step without a path to follow. Elise Bent and Kris Vockler are the perfect team; passionate explorers and intensely curious. Individually and as a team, they believe that achievement or success is had by courage mixed with grit. Both Elise and Kris grew up in outdoor families, teaching them to not only love our wildlands but to play in them and learn. Elise is educated in animal agriculture, data science, and geospatial applications. “Making it Happen,” being a mantra of Elise means using grit and having the courage to take that first step towards what she seeks to accomplish. Her current work is with Geo-Grain, a subsidiary of Farmers Business Network. Overlanding, hiking, skiing, and kayaking in the Montana wilderness is where you will find Elise. Kris is educated in Geology, Chemistry, and Business. “Bias, towards action,” is a quote you will often hear from Kris, which means knowing the mission and using courage to take active steps towards what needs to be done. Kris is the CEO of her family business, ICD High Performance Coatings. Where she leads amazing teams and creates products that seek to make work and living environments healthier through chemistry. Overlanding, fishing, and traveling the Globe from her home base in the Cascade Mountains is where you will find Kris.
