 Started riding at 8 years old going out on the weekends with my dad to our local state parks. We would also do a lot of family camping riding trips with my mom and sister who also ride! Not too long after we realized there was a big race at one of our favorite parks and my dad signed me up but quickly realized on the sheet there wasn’t a girls class. While on the line waiting for the start he went down and counted all the pony tails after the race he went up to the promoters and told them there were more than three girls out there and they deserve there own class. The next race we showed up to there was now a girls class on the sign up sheet! We then started following our local District 38 Hare Scramble series and from there we were hooked! I moved up quick in all the female classes and started Racing national level races in 2006. I was at the first women’s Pro offroad race in 2008 that WORCS started and from there I was all in. My life revolved around Racing and I put everything I had Into it! My parents being super supportive drove me to races all over and was still there at the end of my career always cheering me on! Riding for Factory KTM has been a dream come true, there support has been top notch since I signed in 2014! I’m  very excited and grateful to be able to keep my partnership with them by being a KTM Ambassador!
