Where are some of your favorite places to ride?
Colorado! Crested Butte & Gunnison areas. The scenery is breathtaking.
What is on your moto bucket list to ride?
Hmm… I think there’s a lot of places I want to ride on my moto bucket list still. I think one day, I want to try and race a GNCC.
Do you ride with a lot of other female riders?
Yes, I love finding new female friends to ride with. I’m always down for a cruise or a challenge, so I will ride with other girls of any skill level. Luckily, I have a lot of female friends that ride!
Do you have anyone in the moto world that you look up to?
Yes, I look up to a lot of other women in the industry and women riders. Active, strong, vocal women riders like Ashley Fiolek (@af67), Megan Griffiths (@megs_braap), Jacqueline Carrizosa (@brojaq), Kelsey Abbott (@DA8Apparel), Rhiannon Kamo (@PCIRaceRadios) and so many others. Anya & Ashmore — you two women are a blessing to the sport and industry, and an inspiration to me! As well as men in the industry who support women riders. All of my co-workers at the Kurt Caselli Foundation and the USMCA —Donny Emler Jr. (a true hard worker always on the go and being creative), Christy LaCurelle (a boss woman.), Jenna Parker, Momma Caselli, Carolyn Caselli, Sarah White. I really do look up to everyone I work with —I’m surrounded by so many people who inspire and help me to grow on and off the bike as a person and a rider. My boyfriend Joey, my friends Brittany Brooks, Justin Morgan, David Kamo, Mark Samuels… Too many people to name!
What was your experience at Babes in the Dirt/Babes Ride Out events?
I was pleasantly surprised! I was nervous and thought I’d be going out to a weekend full of drama & cliques since there are a LOT of girls out there —but everyone was so nice, kind, welcoming and supportive. I met a lot of new riders or girls who have only ridden with their dads, brothers, boyfriends or putted around camp on a bike. It’s always a fun weekend of seeing new riders enjoy their time on motorcycles, correcting bad riding habits, giving tips to help improve their experience and helping girls challenge themselves. The coolest thing is seeing someone’s expressions after they conquer something they didn’t think was possible.
