Today we have a bonafide #bossbabe and pioneer: Julia Landauer, a NASCAR driver and two-time champion who is empowering women all over the world.

After becoming the first woman to win a NASCAR Track Championship at Motor Mile Speedway in her division, Julia graduated to the televised NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. She finished 4th in the K&N championship, becoming the highest finishing female in the series’ 64-year history. Plus, this girl is frickin’ smart – she graduated from Stanford with a BS in Science, Technology, and Society!

She is standing in her strengths and her light, paving the way not only for aspiring female racecar drivers but also for any women who want to live in their truth + what really makes them happy. We chat about…
