"Hi! I’m Jessy Greenland, single mother of 3 from Oklahoma. I am a born and raised okie! I live with my amazing boyfriend David, and my last 2 kids who are fixing to graduate! I have sacrificed a lot in my life for my kids, and as the kids are growing up and moving on in their own lives, I am trying to make my dreams become a reality. I have always loved NASCAR and cars in general. As I got into more of the off-roading scene and Jeeps, I found a new love for off-roading. In the meantime, I have been doing hair for 16 years now and own my own salon. I consider myself a Hair Artist, because I paint hair canvases. I enjoy my career and all my clients so much, that it doesn't feel like a job to me. I have learned so much in the last 3 years and have gone full force into wanting to become an off-road and desert racer. I have, with the help of my boyfriend and friends, continued to build and learn everything I can about my Jeep. I would like to eventually purchase a buggy or rock bouncer as well as an Ultra4 car or pre-runner. I want to get into racing and competing, making it to KOH and get into a racing circuit. I plan on getting into Fab work by starting with welding school and possibly ASE certification. Charlene has helped me so much and I can't wait to continue my journey with Ladies Offroad Network!"
