i was fortunate to win a state championship in track and field during high school, and went on to compete collegiately in two sports (soccer + cross country). 

After completing my masters with a focus on qualitative research and human behavior, I continued to pursue my running dreams, and feel blessed to still have the drive to compete and better myself even as our family grows and life gets a little crazier. 

I've learned throughout the years that loving the process, having fun, and encouraging others are the keys to success. I so enjoyed being a part of others' goals, that I began coaching, and the rest is history. It truly feels like my calling.
