"Well let’s see… I’m a newbie to offroading. I have been offroading with friends but would love to learn more and experience more with it. I am super outdoorsy and offroading is a bucket list item for me. You’ll find me hiking, shooting, running, camping, or snow skiing outside on any given day! So naturally I want to add offroading to the list. I am originally from Pittsburgh and got tired of the cold and moved to the desert and don’t regret my decision at all! I have been a car girl my entire life, including my first job at NAPA Auto Parts! I have a classic Ford Mustang that I tinker on from time to time. I have helped my dad restore his 1966 and 1965 Ford Mustangs, starting at the age of 10! I have raced a mini-stock on a quarter mile oval track, so I definitely have racing in my blood. In my spare time I love to cook and bake. I have recently started running Spartan Races with my dad…what an experience! I am also have a passion for philanthropy and try to help out as much as I can with my favorite charities. I have my girly girl tendencies but can get down and dirty with the best of them! As my dad always says…”Never say woulda, coulda or shoulda!” So that’s why I all about tackling some off-roading experiences!"
