Career Highlights

Jennifer (mom), Brian (dad), Haylie (sister), and Fiance (Megan). My family was always very supportive of my athletic goals. For youth travel teams and the seven sports, I participated in throughout high school, they rarely missed a game, match or race. As I've grown older, I've come to appreciate that presence more and more, which I will prioritize with my future children. My fiancé also inspires me, not only for her support but for her determination, drive, and work ethic. I cannot think of anyone who motivates me to strive for more.

Favorite Running Memory
In 2019 I travelled to Frankfurt, Germany to race the marathon, and around mile 15 during that race I tripped over my own feet when trying to grab a bottle from the nutrition table, breaking my arm. I finished the race and to this day, it's still my PR!
