I began with a love of taking things apart and putting them back together. Sometimes there was a screw or two left over, but that’s why we start young right?!
Whether I was tinkering on motorcycles with dad, or restoring Model-T’s and Karmann ghias with grandpa, learning how things worked was cool.
I successfully completed the Honda PACT program in 2008. In 2009 became and automotive mechanic and worked in various racing series (Rolex, F430 Challenge, Redline) from 2008-2010. After travelling through Europe, I came back to work at Porsche (not as a mechanic) but was still able to appreciate the machines and participate in club events.
Today, I love to work on my Hondas, my 07 GSXR 750, and my 1946 Willy’s Jeep. It brings me joy to teach other women about their vehicles so they feel empowered and confident.
"A shop told me I would need to replace my brake pads and rotors so I called Talena. She asked me a few simple questions and I found out I didn't need to replace my rotors - saved me hundreds of dollars."
