Gerda grew up in the north of the Netherlands in a county called Friesland. She was working as a central assistant for a cab/ambulance company before she met her husband, Lex Joon, who introduced her to the world of drag racing. She became team manager for Lex Joon Racing taking care of everything that has to do with crew, traveling and organization. Gerda and her husband organized and promoted with great success drag races in the Netherlands. She has a huge love for animals and became a licensed horse riding instructor. She managed to win several dressage medals with her horse "Okido".

In October 2013, Gerda immigrated together with her husband to the USA to make their American Dream a reality.

The 2019 NHRA season was a game changer for Gerda's role on the team. Under the tutelage of a veteran nitro tuner, she stepped up to meet the challenges that go along with the role of assistant crew chief.

In 2020, Gerda was appointed to the role of co-crew chief, along with her husband, driver Lex Joon. One of a handful of females who have ever occupied this position on a nitro top fuel dragster team, Gerda proves that you can accomplish whatever you dream if you believe and never quit.
