Just a couple of months out of graduating High School, I had started to work modeling jobs, knowing it was an easy and fun way to earn some money. While I was putting together a portfolio, I quickly realized I wanted to earn enough money for a UTV. Shortly after, Playboy hosted a local casting call. Becoming a playmate was something I always wanted to do, so I took the chance. A few weeks went by, and I got the call to come to the Playboy Mansion where Hugh Hefner announced me as Miss June 2010.

Continuing my goal of purchasing a UTV, I worked various Bunny gigs, eventually making enough to buy a Polaris RZR 900. Originally, I had no intentions of racing, but instead took trips out to the local riding areas, like Dumont Dunes and Glamis. That all changed once I had come across the Lucas Oil Regional series and attended a race as a spectator. It was love at first site, and I immediately wanted to be able to race the next race in the RZR 900 Production class.

Working hard to get a program together, I was lucky enough to have the sponsor support to begin chasing my dream of racing, competing at Round 1 of the 2014 Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series. At my first race, I worked to finish top 10 in the field. Setting the bar and the addiction of racing, going to the track whenever I can to get seat time, Still wanting more and the opportunity to move up the ranks of short course racing.
