I have always loved vehicles. While I was growing up, I attended many car shows with my parents and grandparents. Prior to joining Pilot Flying J, I served in the U.S. Army after being inspired by my grandparent’s stories of war and their sense of pride while serving. I graduated as an honor grad in my class of soldiers at Ft. Lee Virginia. I wanted to be the first female in my family to serve. I have always admired women who step out of their comfort zones and try something new, especially when everyone doubts their ability to do so. To me, that makes the reward all the more fantastic when accomplished.
