Greatest Accomplishment
Creating a path for myself so that I can both build my profession as a venture capital investor and continue to run competitively.
Interesting Story
I had a significant knee/tibia surgery, a high tibial osteotomy, on my left leg in 2020. The recovery process to return to racing took almost a year and a half. Prior to undergoing the procedure, I was unsure if I would be able to consistently run again. Yet since returning to the sport, I have set new personal bests across distances from the mile to the marathon.
