Growing up I barely played sports and was never competitive. My love for running grew out of my love for wilderness and solitude. Running to me represents both my zeal for life and my release from it. My favorite day consists of rising with the sun, fueling up on oatmeal and spending the day in the Adirondack Mountains with my dog, Mocha.
Professionally, I acquired my RN license in July of 2015 and currently work part time at Adirondack Health in Saranac Lake, NY. I have a background in environmental education and was employed as a brewpub manager and server for over a decade. In 2015 I chose to pursue my passion for the mountains and traveled throughout the western United States competing in the US SkyRunning Series while living out of my truck. That experience helped to solidify my belief that dreams are achievable and reality can be built.
Currently I run for La Sportiva and Julbo; incredibly honored and proud to represent two companies that are passionate about the mountains and helping people achieve their goals.
See you on the trail!
