High octane fuel is in Loxley’s blood.
Loxley’s love of automobiles began as a tween-ager. At the age of 12, she announced she was going to become a designer. She did just that and has since designed everything from interiors, to landscapes, to furniture, to consumer products.
But the pinnacle of iconic design, the siren song that has beckoned her ever since those formative years, is the Porche 911. It’s sleek lines and impeccable engineering lit a passion for automobiles that cannot be extinguished.
It is that love of automobiles, combined with her business acumen, marketing skills, and intense devotion, that serves as the driving force behind Athena Racing. With degrees in Design, Education, and Entrepreneurship & Innovation, she utilizes her broad skillset and spirit to ignite the excitement of learning. Athena establishes a fun platform from which to learn STEM principles and will open young minds to all the possibilities that lay before them.
Loxley is a member of Athena SD, Society of Women Engineers, San Diego Women In STEM ecosystem, and the Explorers Club. She has volunteered with the Veterans Museum to chair the kidFUNfest, and volunteers with La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, as well as Girl Scouts, TEDx, Miramar Community College, and the San Diego County Office of Education in Southern California.
Over the past decade, she has worked in the non-profit sector producing events for American Cancer Society, Make-a-Wish, and Easter Seals; she has led an experiential marketing campaign around the world through five countries, and has been on the founding teams creating buzz and traction for multiple startups across multiple sectors.
Now she is on the starting grid with Athena Racing. Watch the team grow as she champions young girls who are primed to race towards the finish line and demolish the status quo.
teachings of a Mentor
“Every conversation I have begins with, “How did you come up with this idea?” For me, the need for Athena was obvious. I have been the only woman in the room my entire career. Nothing about that is easy. With the number of teenagers in my life who come to me for help on the big decisions, I knew I could make a difference in some young lives, change entrenched mindsets, and disrupt the status quo.”

Leading by example, we are surrounding the team with mentors, teaching with real-life experiences, and giving them hands-on projects. They will get to see and experience ideas coming to life. Some will fail, but failure teaches. Some won’t win the competition but will learn how to be a graceful participant. Everything that we are doing is reality. Don’t think we don’t love winning, we do. And everyone should. The task that is the hardest is being graceful in your accomplishments… that is what we celebrate.
As a business industry innovator, I have spent the past decade leading start-up companies through R&D, branding, company organization, marketing development, PR campaigns, investor presentations and product launch. I thrive on leading team members to align efforts with marketing, public relations, brand management, product development and business strategies.
