How long have you been riding/racing motorcycles?

I was given my first dirt bike for my 6th birthday, a sweet pw50 and I've been riding motorcycles ever since. I raced motocross through high school and then took a break from racing when life got busy in my early 20's. I had a family and work was super hectic and my racing got put on the back burner (unfortunately). In 2022 I decided that I wanted to race flat track instead of motocross and purchased a new to me bike set up for flat track racing.

What advice would you give your younger self?

I would tell myself to do more for myself, and not give up. When I took a "break" from racing I really got caught up in my work, life events like growing a family and really gave myself to others around me instead of doing the things I loved for myself.

What is one of the most unexpected challenges you’ve come across getting into this sport?

That it is a lot harder than it looks! (Laughing but serious). The sport takes a lot of time, patience, and respect. Growing up riding motocross I would always compare myself to others and beat myself up for not being as fast as I wanted to be but came to realize that it takes a lot of time and effort and that I needed to be nicer to myself. Now that I'm racing flat track, I have racing habits from motocross that I need to break and re learn these new things about flat track that I never knew until now.

Advice for riders thinking of getting involved in motorcycle racing.

DO IT. I understand how intimidating the sport can be and that sometimes holds people back, but the community is full of supportive and knowledgeable people, and I want to see everyone who wants to race, race. It doesn't matter how good of a rider you are or what you do or don't know about the sport. Everyone has started somewhere and if anyone reading this feels like they want to start racing but doesn't know where to start, please reach out to me anytime.

What does being a powerful woman mean to you?

Being an authentic, confident and good human being who lifts other people up. I have met a lot of powerful women and consider myself one of them. We are there to support each other, have a voice for those who need it and do the right thing even when no one is looking.
