I am a lifelong runner, wife and aunt to three amazing nephews. I grew up in Northern Michigan surrounded by the beauty of the Great Lakes and I'm grateful for a childhood centered around playing outside! I do most of my training in the Santa Monica and San Gabriel mountains and feel blessed to have access to such amazing local trails. After more than a decade of road running and marathons I started to spend more time hiking and in 2012 discovered ultra-running and fell in love with the sport and the community. I am grateful for every adventure and passionate about encouraging others to pursue their dreams, believe in themselves and enjoy the journey!
