Career Highlights
Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Champion in the 10k and 5k outdoor, 5k and 3k indoor; NCAA qualifier
My family is incredibly supportive and have been watching me run since I was in 4th grade. I currently live with my partner, Jaydn Asay, who is an amazing marathon runner and my #1 fan. He has also trained and help me train for both Trials.
Greatest Accomplishment
Running the world standard at McKirdy; earning my master's degree while working full-time and training
Interesting Story
I am currently working on a doctoral degree, training and working full-time. The past couple of years have been difficult to manage stress and overcome some disordered eating habits. I was injured leading up to my qualification in 2020, and have had off-and-on injuries for most of my marathon career. I have grown to realize the life-changing effects of running and have become more and more obsessed as I have gotten older.
