Favorite Sayings:

I have a few favorite sayings but two that stick with me are the following:

"I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence." - Ayrton Senna This quote is important to me because as women in motorsports we often are trailblazers.

"The engine is the ideal teaching tool – it features all of the elements of engineering: materials, fluids, thermodynamics, lubrication, chemistry, electronics, etc. The only thing missing is nuclear reaction." - Phil Myers (This quote is from the founder of my university lab and I could add that engines teach you so much more, patience, resilience, precision, etc.)
