What made you start doing the amazing things that you do?
When I first purchased a jeep, I got into an off-roading crowd. Everyone was into watching events like King of the Hammers, and after watching it on TV, I realized that was something I wanted to do. As time went on, I realized the only way I could eventually participate in an event like that, is to build myself a race buggy. I was already into small bolt on type vehicle builds after working on my own projects, so leaping into learning to welding and fabrication wasn't far off.
What are you great at, and what do you suck at?
I'm really great at accepting the fact that everyone starts from ground zero when starting a new skill, as I love learning new things. I find it so interesting and love learning new hands on skills. I do have a really hard time reading instructions, even if it's simple, and have to have someone show me hands on, or I have to watch multiple videos. I find it normally takes me a few times of someone showing me the same thing, before I grasp it. Then I can hit the ground running, and apply it to various applications, and grow on it.
What scares you?
Not achieving my goals.
If you could give your 20-year-old-self advice, what would it be?
Just fucking do it.
Do you have any special projects or cool things you want people to check out?
I am currently building myself a race buggy, and when I'm held back on funds, I continue with my 1966 Jeep CJ I'm building from the ground up.
What does workwear designed for women mean to you?
I want what men have in work wear. I want the reinforced knees, pockets that actually hold stuff, tough material, and a fit to my body. I want to be able to work on my vehicles, and not have to worry about what I'm wearing, if its going to handle me grinding & cutting my axles, or welding my chassis, I have more important things to think about. I also work with multiple other companies in promoting, fitments of parts, and how to videos, so a professional look is a must.
