I love the off-roading lifestyle so much that I left my day job to launch my own custom off-road shop and team. All of my energy goes into promoting my off-road company, traveling to events, and being involved with lady oriented events, military appreciation events, and organizations such as Set Them Free to help people in need. In my spare time I love challenging myself with running. I try to push my limits every chance I get.
How long have you been offroading?
Off and on for about 20 years.
How did you get into offroading?
With friends in high school. We would take weekend trips into the mountains for camping trips, followed with trips to Moab as we got older.
All work was done by my husband, Shawn, and myself at our shop Lyft Offroad. Pandora is a 2012 JKU, She is set on 37-inch Cooper STT Pros and Spyderlock Wheels. Her suspension is made of Synergy control arms and Evo 4-inch lift. She has Currie Antirock sway bars, she has a 3M vinyl wrap which features my company logo created by Nathan Ridde of Krawlzone and featuring my sponsors. Axles are stock 44s with Evo gussets, trusses, and sleeves. Her body armour is EVO RockSkins and CornerSkins, sliders were a gift from Audrey Byrd, they are customs from Scorpion Motorsports. She also has a driveline by Adams driveshaft, and topped off with the new NX Glide by Bestop.
It’s hard to pinpoint a favorite, anytime I’m on the trail, behind the wheel is a new opportunity to meet new friends and do what I love.
What was your most exciting offroad achievement?
It was a trail I hosted during Jeep Safari. The best part about it, Jeep media team was with us filming our adventure and they have just started releasing the content on social media. It was a very proud moment for me to see my team featured.
What excites you about offroading?
The adrenaline , the thrill of pushing my limits, like running forces me to push past my mental barriers. Then there’s the part where you get to meet awesome people doing the same thing. It’s an awesome connection.
Breaking down your mental barriers and getting past your fears and doubts.
Which aspect of offroading do you think is the most fun?
Trying new obstacles; doing something that I never imagined I could do.
I try to keep it simple. Less is more. I used to bring everything I thought I might need with me. Now I know what items are the bare essentials. Packing too much just weighs you down. For me, prepping for an adventure includes researching it. Learning about it, and know what to expect.
What is on your offroading bucket list?
The Rebelle Rally.
I have a great circle of like minded offroaders varying in age, gender, and from all sorts of lifestyles. We have one common bond, off-roading and our friendships.
What is a piece of advice you have been given that you instill in your offroading adventures?
The only way I will grow to do better or do something awesome is to push myself to try it.
I founded Lyft Offroad on the principle that we would encourage those who can’t off-road to go with us on an adventure, much like Hero for A Day. We also enjoy giving back to the community and want to show people that we are more than just a shop, and that we are more than just an off-road group.
