A quotation you like…

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” – Moulin Rouge


Why do you run?


To challenge myself and stay fit and healthy.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Running through New York City’s Central Park and seeing my whole family cheering behind the fence a mile before the finish. It was exhilarating and gave me the push I needed to finish strong.

Why do you pace?


It’s a very special feeling when you are given the opportunity to help someone enjoy a race and achieve their goal.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I paced Ft. Lauderdale, FL at the Michelob Ultra 13.1. It was a very windy day and very challenging for the runners, especially the first timers. At the end of the race, one girl was so happy about her finish that she wanted a picture with me and told me she could have never done it without me.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I will make sure to keep the energy positive and will get them to the finish line exactly on pace.

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I recently raised $5,000 for needy Holocaust survivors through the organization The Blue Card and was able to run the New York City Marathon for this cause on November 1, 2015.
