Career Highlights
Qualifying for the Olympic Marathon Trials and becoming the 2019 National Intercollegiate Run Club Association (NIRCA) 5K Champ
My husband, Bryce, played football in high school (Queen Creek) and college (Rose-Hulman), but has been since been convinced to do some running! He has completed two half marathons and a road mile.
Greatest Accomplishment
Finding a hobby, running, that has provided me opportunities to chase big goals, meet amazing people that share my passion and experience new things while exercising.
Interesting Story
My qualifying race was my fourth attempt at the standard. Each attempt provided a learning experience and slowly the pieces fell into place. The race I qualified at was extra special, as it took place in the city where I live. It was fun to race through the streets I train on, seeing familiar faces, all while being paced by my coach, who is a close friend!

Favorite Motivational Quote
“Success is not about reaching the goal itself. It’s about who you become in the process.” - Nik Jones
Favorite Running Memory
Turning around to see my coach cross the line after me when I qualified for the Trials! That post-race hug is something I’ll never forget (and seeing my husband crying was an added bonus)!
