INTERESTS

An avid traveler, I enjoy visiting new places. When I am not exploring the world or working, I like relaxing with my cat and a nice glass of wine. During my time off I garden, hike, ride bicycles and can often be found at flat track events on a Saturday night with my partner in crime.

BACKGROUND

I gained many skills early in my career by working my way up the management ladder at Starbucks Coffee. In need of a reset, I travelled around the world for a year and went back to school to hone my technical skills. This led me into the Accounting world as the “Techie” in the Finance Department. I started my career at TAW Performance as the Financial Controller.

INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE

My exposure to motorcycles began with my partner who is very involved in the flat track racing community. We currently share our basement with many vintage motorcycles and often host events for the riding crowd in our mini motorcycle museum. Even though motorcycles are not my first two-wheeled hobby, I continually learn more about the industry and apply that knowledge in managing the daily operations at TAW Performance.
