I am a runner; RRCA certified running coach, personal trainer and fitness writer for the 8fit app. I discovered long distance running after graduating college and needing something to fill my time post-collegiate basketball. My world revolves around fitness and spandex is my wardrobe! I believe in inspiring others to find their best self through fitness and running and truly believe anyone can be a runner. I love helping others find their inner warrior and discover a love of running. I have had the privilege of working with Nike and Athleta as a running ambassador and would love to connect with anyone interested in discovering their inner athlete! My racing history includes 3 full marathons, numerous half marathons, 10K’s and 5K’s, as well as one hood to coast relay!
