This month's #SheIsSEMA Member Spotlight goes out to Kendra Sommer of Cruisin’ with Kendra. Check out her Q&A with SEMA and the SBN below:

The best advice I ever received was…

"Just jump and the parachute will open." - Steve Harvey
"You have to follow your passions and sometimes, it takes a bold move to spark your success." - Myself

Both of those have been mottos that I live by... the latter being my own.

This keeps me in the industry:

The people who are in this industry are incredibly supportive, welcoming and passionate about their work... so who wouldn't want to be around that kind of environment. Aside from the amazing people in this field, this is an industry I love. I grew up with my father and in his fleet of Old International Trucks.

On a Saturday, you can find me…

On Saturdays you will likely find me... on location, producing and filming content that not only celebrates our industry, but promotes engagement in the trades and profiles the wonderful people who make up this industry.

When going into an important meeting I am always…

...trying to be as relaxed as possible before meetings. I try to find a few moments for myself to relax, drink water and focus my thoughts.

If I could go to lunch with one industry leader, living or dead, it would be…

I would love to have lunch with Alice Huyler Ramsey. In 1909, Ramsey was the first woman to drive across the country - coast to coast - at the young age of just 22. During her drive, she endured various obstacles, but stayed true to her path. I admire her bravery and dedication to act as a role model to woman. Especially since during that time, women drivers were rare.
