A quotation you like…


“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen” ~Ralph Waldo Emmerson

Why do you run?


To stay fit, challenge myself and manage day to day stress.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Space Coast Marathon 2011 - my fist BQ, I won 3rd in my age group and 1st place for Space Coast Runners. I received my awards from Kathrine Switzer, the first woman who ever ran Boston.

Why do you pace?


I truly enjoy it. Helping someone achieve a goal is better than any race award I could ever win.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I paced a 2:00 half marathon group and had a couple people run their first sub 2:00 half. It was incredible!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


We will have fun! I am very high energy and motivational, stick with me and you will achieve your goal!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Be realistic about the pace you can run and if you err, do so on caution. It is best to start slow than to go out too fast, you can always pull ahead.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Don’t get so focused on pace that you miss the experience, especially in a big city marathon.


What philanthropic activities do you have?


I volunteer with the NASA Outreach Program judging local science fairs.
