I’ve been obsessed with motorcycles since... as far back as I can remember. When I was a kid all I wanted for Christmas was a dirt bike. My parents didn’t quite see eye to eye with me on the subject and decided that a remote control motorcycle toy would suffice. It took me a little over a decade, but at the age of 19 I finally purchased my first motorcycle, a 2011 Harley-Davidson XL1200X. I was hooked. Within weeks of owning the bike I began taking 500+ mile weekend road trips all over Texas.
Upon graduating college with my Bachelor’s of Business Administration in both Marketing and Management, I rode my sportster from Texas all the way to California alone. From there I traveled through the Baja on a motorcycle run that forever changed my life. I came home from my trip and landed a job as a Marketing Manager & Event Coordinator for one of the top five Harley Dealerships in the United States. Within a year I realized the place for me was not to be stuck in an office, watching motorcycles get sold all day—it was to be making a difference within the actual motorcycle community.
Today, my horse stable is a little more packed. I’ve added another Sportster as well as a Dyna to my lineup, and have logged over 100,000 miles between the three in the last five years. Eight months out of the year I live out of a duffel bag on my motorcycle as I travel across the country, meeting fellow riders and attending events big and small. My current line of work has enabled me to combine my two passions of motorcycles and photography, and for that I am thankful. I’m a photographer and journalist for some of the top motorcycle magazines and companies in the industry, and am fortunate enough to test out new gear and motorcycles on a daily basis. With the women’s motorcycle market on the rise, it’s been an honor to be the face of multiple brands within the industry for the women’s motorcycle community.
