and achieved my Masters level in psychology. I also lived to tell how it is to teach middle school. I
was a dance instructor of Ballet, Tap, and Jazz, all while dancing at a competitive level. I won many
awards as a dancer. I coached cheerleading, taking them to a national win at the Aloha Sports
International. I have competed in the NPC; National Physique Committee and also the NGA; National
Gym Association of Natural Bodybuilders. I also took part in the car chix calendar competition for the

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS: Making through Lights Out 11 and then Sweet 16, 3.0 and No Mercy 11 back to
FAVORITE QUOTE/SAYING: Never take anything in life for granted, because you never know when
tragedy is going to strike and then it will be too late.
HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS: My dad got me involved into
automobiles when I was young, he owned garage and body shop; so, from there I learned how to turn
my first wrenches. Then when Donald “Duck” and I got together it just came back around into my life.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS: I love all automobiles. It doesn’t
matter if they go fast or slow; old or new.
WHAT IS YOUR BEST CAR/RACING/MOTORSPORTS RELATED MEMORY: Seeing all of the smalls from
not only our adult fans but our young generation of fans as well. It just sends chills to see them run
up to duck or myself for an autograph or to watch them run to their favorite racer.
WHAT IS YOUR WORST CAR/RACING/MOTORSPORTS RELATED MEMORY: Any time any of our racers
take flight. It scares me to death until I know personally that he or she is out of the vehicle and has
been cleared by the paramedics or the hospital.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR NEXT SEASON: To make it through the whole season without having to
hurt the hubby, “Duck”
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES FOR REACHING YOUR GOALS: The “haters” or the people who
like to “piggyback” your ideas. Which is why we have learned to become a lot more silent about our
plans and make them that much more of a surprise.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER HOBBIES OR PASSIONS: I would love to say bodybuilding and dance (ballet,
tap, jazz, etc..) first, however my favorite hobby and passion is being with my family and making
memories that will last a life time, life has unexpected turns and you have to make the best of
everything at that moment.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP SONGS FOR WHEN YOU ARE DOING CARS THINGS / RACING: Anything AC/DC or
our own personal Duck X Production songs. PM me for a complete list of our own songs.
IF YOU GOT A MILLION DOLLARS TOMORROW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT? I have recently been
diagnosed with a few different illnesses. I would take the money and put it towards finding cures to
autoimmune diseases and also hereditary hemochromatosis.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE BLOGS, WEBSITES OR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES THAT YOU
FOLLOW? I follow all of “my” racers that have pages. I love to keep up with what they are doing and
where they will be racing next.
ADVICE TO OTHER WOMEN IN MOTORSPORTS OR WOMEN INTERESTED IN GETTING INVOLVED IN
MOTORSPORTS: Don’t be scared. Just do it. It used to be a predominantly a man’s sport, but don’t let
that intimidate you. Woman can go just as fast if not faster. And we certainly can keep order and
organization just as good, I would have to say better.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE CAR CHIX COMMUNITY: Always just be
yourself. There is no reason in the world to try and act like someone that you are not. Either people
will love you or not. And if they don’t then they are probably just jealous. This is always something
that I tell my own daughters.
