Marathon finish you’re most proud of and why: City of Oaks Marathon, Raleigh NC. My favorite marathon because I ran it with my 2 best friends. We placed 4th, 5th, and 6th overall. There isn’t much better than running with friends.

Previous Pacing Experience: I have paced teammates in college races to hit their goals and I have assisted friends in Ultra Marathons and been a safety runner for friends during the later portion of ultras.

Interests, hobbies, and any other information your pace team might like to know about you: Running inspires me – both breaking through personal barriers and witnessing others’ give their all and realize what the human spirit can accomplish. I like to travel, meditate, connect with others through running (it is so great to start a friendship with a mutual and powerful unspoken understanding without judgement. Just being with fellow humans). It is a passion of mine to help create the atmosphere for others to achieve. And I am excited to be with you for 26.2 miles as you enjoy the fruits of your training on race day!
