Entrepreneur, Stuntwoman, Moto-Enthusiast, Author, Podcaster, Speaker, Investor, Philanthropist


Carol is a first-generation child born in the United States with immigrant parents from Taiwan. She grew up experiencing the freedom of the American culture along with the deep rooted traditions of the Chinese culture, speaking both English and Taiwanese and was both Presbyterian and Buddhist. This unconventional upbringing has given her a unique perspective on how she views the world. Observing these vast differences allowed insight to various viewpoints and has shaped how she navigates her businesses and relationships. Being female in her culture and a child of the US with all its privileges, Carol was caught amid the clashing of two cultures and had to learn how to accept and integrate them both into her life.

Carol’s childhood greatly influenced the person she is today, from the innate sense of duty and responsibility to being accepting of all mindsets and backgrounds. The role as “big sister” to a large extended family taught her that understanding and compassion could greatly overcome all odds and has instilled a solid foundation of core ethics and values she incorporates in all aspects of her life. Undeterred by the limiting the beliefs and the duty placed upon her in her younger years, she went from her studies in pre-med to changing her major to business once her mother passed away, realizing that it was not her “calling.” Taking a chance, she went down her bucket list to discover a passion for motorcycles and it has since become her life’s work.

In 2012 she started MotoVixens LLC, a motorcycle track day organization. It was with a mission to be inclusive of all riders regardless of their gender, race and religion and without discrimination of the types of bikes they ride. MotoVixens focuses on education, safety, community and camaraderie and ensuring the preservation of the sport. In championing women in motorcycling and other industries, it is her desire to give them access without barriers and provide mentorship to help them succeed.

Carol is the mother of two boys, Christopher and Kevin. In her years in business, she has been a model, actress, stuntwoman, author, TedX speaker, voice over actor, racer, podcaster, hosted a reality show, has signature lines of products, is the Founder of MotoVixens, as well as Selenion Strategy Group, the Managing partner for Iron Dog Media and partner of The Amani Resorts and The Business Ethics & Education Commission and an Azure Printed Homes, Inc. Investor.  She continues to champion women in every industry seeking opportunities to help others, elevate their lives, and encourage them to continue the trend of giving back.  "We are all in this together and together we can make a difference."



In 2011 successful entrepreneur, model, actress, and motorcycle/race enthusiast; Carol Carpenter found herself at a crossroads. Although she had achieved success in many fields and ventures, she found herself feeling somewhat unhappy and unfulfilled. Realizing that it was never too late to follow her dreams, Carol decided to leave her comfort zone and venture into the unknown in pursuit of her passion. As a result, in 2012 MotoVixens was founded. This new and fresh enterprise would serve as a resource for motorcycle and racing enthusiasts which would ultimately prove to be a catapult for Carol to inspire women and riders across the globe. 

As a female rider, Carol was constantly faced with unique challenges and she consistently sought out ways to tear down paradigms in the sport while overcoming limiting beliefs. This was so riders and enthusiasts could completely focus on the enjoyment of the experience. Carol immediately started developing relationships with dealerships, manufacturers, as well as local businesses and it, suddenly became clear to her that others, not just women, could benefit from collaborating together without initial knowledge of the sport. Through collaboration and building lasting relationships, those involved could further promote and grow their businesses with success.

In 2013, MotoVixens collaborated with Ducati Bellevue to host track days with a dedicated session for women riders which was met great success. In order to expand their reach, MotoVixens began their own track days in 2014 with the goal of hiring elite coaches. This fundamental change would allow men, women, and young riders the opportunity to learn from the best in the industry at their local tracks allowing riders to pursue their passion without having the added expense of traveling and renting equipment. In 2015, MotoVixens partnered with Jason Pridmore of JP43 Training. This world-renowned racer, having won multiple championships is respected within the industry as the riding coach. Jason also serves as the current announcer for MotoAmerica. MotoVixens special events include Jason's current MotoAmerica riders as coaches which provide the ultimate learning experience.

Today, Carol has become an influential figure in the motorcycle industry and focuses her time on giving back to the sport she holds so close to her heart. Through sponsorship, she continues to help riders, racers, and others to find their passion and to fulfill their dreams.
