TEAM NOW OR NEVER, #153

VEHICLE: 2015 Jeep Wrangler 4-door

Our story is about women doing amazing things. A team of two determined women with one tough Jeep. Based in California, our passion for the outdoors runs deep. We advocate a healthy lifestyle and love all the opportunities the outdoors offer. We met through our husbands’ mutual love of 4-wheeling and a friendship was born. Before long we had bought our own Jeeps. We drove them up steep mountains, through streams, and over boulders, to build our skills and gain confidence. For us driving is not just a necessity, it’s fun!

We aspire to break boundaries and conquer personal goals, we believe that when one woman (or two) faces a challenging experience it empowers others to do the same. We want to inspire more women to drive, climb, cross the line and break out of the box to achieve whatever they want in their lives. So, when we heard of the Rebelle Rally, we knew it was our destiny to get behind the wheel!

When we started talking about doing the Rebelle, there was some doubt about doing it this year. That’s when we realized, if we don’t do it now, we may never do it. So it’s Now or Never for us!
