I began riding in 1967 in the Chicago suburbs, never dreaming that it would lead to being the 5th woman inducted into the National Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
In the mid-1970s, I was very active in motorcycle rights.
In 1983, I co-founded the second chapter of Women in the Wind (WITW) now an international group.
In 1985, I co-founded Harley Women Magazine, created for women motorcycle riders.
I started the Queen of the Hill Drag Race, an all-women all-Harley drag race held during the Black Hills Motor Classic in Sturgis, S.D.
In 1992, Harley Women Magazine, my former partner and myself were included in the American Motorcycle Association’s "Heritage Motorcycle Museum" display on ‘Women In Motorcycling’.
In 1991, I appeared in the film "She Lives to Ride" by Alice Stone, of Filkela Films in Boston. I was a guest speaker at its Chicago Art Institute debut.
I appeared on one of the "Harley-Davidson People" collectors cards (similar to baseball cards) produced by SkyBox International.
In 2009, I was hit by a distracted driver, and it literally changed my world.
My accident has led to my current position as an Accident Investigator for Hupy and Abraham. They are the creators of the "Watch for Motorcycles" campaign.
