What is your favorite part about racing?

The team aspect for one.  As a driver, you are just a piece of the
whole team.  You realize in off-road racing that your crew is
absolutely critical to performance. The thing I like about racing is
the amount of focus and concentration you have to put into it over a
long period of time.  You literally try to find that edge and stay
there for hours on end.  Plus, you often have to deal with some type
of challenge which pushes you to really problem solve.

How supportive are family and friends?

I am very fortunate to have very supportive friends and family.
Everyone is positive.  My husband is especially supportive and
tolerant of what is a crazy schedule between work and racing.

What suggestions do you have for those who want to start racing?

One, be patient, it takes time to learn and apply the lessons you
learn.  Two, run your own race and don’t worry about the others.
Three, it isn’t easy or inexpensive, so if you want it don’t get

What life-lessons have come out of your career?

I’ve learned to stay calm and focused. There’s a lot of problem
solving to get to the finish.  Also, I’ve learned the importance of
preparation so problems are kept to a minimum.  Nothing beats great
teamwork, preparation and a good attitude.
