Husband, John; Katelyn, Lindsey (daughters), Jenna (stepdaughter)…Prior to 2013, spent her time training horses but with the urging of Charlie Cole and Jason Martin of High Point Performance who own Slick, she turned into a top WPRA barrel racer…Had entered Huntsville, Texas, and the horse she was planning to run there was sold prior to going so she asked Charlie and Jason if she could take Slick. They agreed and the duo placed in their first ever rodeo and things started to click after that especially after winning Guymon, Okla., in early May…Favorite rodeos are Nampa, Idaho, and Cheyenne, Wyo…Favorite holiday is Christmas, favorite place to eat is Jason’s Deli and favorite movie is Seabiscuit…Didn’t grow up in a rodeo family. Learned to barrel race from Bess Chaney when she was 18.
