I first fell in love with the Harley culture back in 2007 when I was invited
to go on the Polar Bear ride. Since it was my first big ride & it was cold, I
showed up with all my ski gear! That was quickly vetoed and someone
borrowed me a leather jacket and I was on my way. I had the time of my
life & all the bikers were so accepting & fun. I decided right then that I
needed to do that again & have been riding ever since! I’ve worked in
retail & sales for the last 40 years, the last 7 years with Harley
Davidson. I traded in my fashion apparel for denim, leather & loud
The best part of my job is the fun people I get to work with along with
customers & friends who all share my passion for wind therapy!
I am originally from Buffalo, NY but now spent 13 years of my life here
in Salt Lake City, UT. While growing up with my Stepfather and
Brothers, I was introduced to my first Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Later I met my husband who is also a HD enthusiast, he and I would
ride on his Electraglide everywhere. Now after raising my children they
share the same excitement and own a few of their own.
I’ve worked here at the Salt Lake HD for 7 years. I feel proud to be part
of the Harley-Davidson team. I consider everyone that comes through
those front doors part of the family.
I originally worked in the Pastry industry for 8 years prior to joining the
Salt Lake Harley-Davidson Team. I wasn’t raised around motorcycles as
a kid, though I have learned so much more about this culture and the
community. I love being a part of the charity events held here at the
store and seeing all of our regulars as well as meeting other H-D
enthusiasts from all over the world.
A few years ago I started riding Harleys surrounded by the red rocks of southern Utah, and breathing in the desert air. Soon after I transitioned into a completely different view, and found myself riding on the back of my boyfriend’s motorcycle in the Wasatch Mountains. My love of snowboarding quickly turned into a different search for speed in nature. Finally I got my own Harley, and began creating my own lines. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to surround myself with others that share the same desire. It’s been a fun ride, and I’m excited to continue my journey with two wheels underneath me.
