My husband is Chris Roberts and we just had our first child, Isabel (Izzy) in June 2023. My dad, Craig Culver, is also my coach!! He was a collegiate D I swimmer and went on to professional triathlon, competing in the Hawaii Ironman! Teresa Culver is my mother and I have one brother, Jason Culver.
Greatest Accomplishment
Being a mom to Isabel. Racing and preparing for the Trials just eight months after having her is probably a close second!
Interesting Story
I didn’t start running until after college and I started with ultramarathons. I’m a little bit of a Benjamin Button when it comes to running.

Favorite Running Memory
Qualifying for the 2020 Olympic Trials at the Indy marathon in 2019; both my family and my husband’s family were there to celebrate.
