Personal goals

After a fulfilling athletic and racing career, I know it is time to help as many other people as possible reach their goals. As someone with an advanced autoimmune disease, my personal goal is to inspire others to Keep F’ing Going with my YES YOU CAN attitude!



A quotation you like…

“Yes You Can” and

“You have two choices in life. Do something. Or do nothing. ALWAYS CHOOSE SOMETHING.” -Wonder Woman


Why do you run?


I run because my body is healthy enough to carry me.

I run because it is my time to clear my head, reflect, and plan for the future.

I run because it grants me the opportunity to meet new people and help others live a more healthy life.

I run because one day I will not be able to do this, but TODAY is not that day!

Describe your best marathon memory.


My best marathon memory actually takes place at EVERY race when I cross the finish line. My father passed away suddenly before he ever saw me run (I took up running at age 30) so I “high five” him up in heaven each time I finish a race because I know he is with me.

Why do you pace?


I pace because I love motivating others to do things that they may not yet realize that they can do. When I first started running, I learned so much about running from the pacers. Aside from being impressed that they could tell stories and talk while running, they provided so much helpful information about the race, running form, water stops, etc… that put your mind at ease and allowed you to believe in yourself.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


My best pacing experience was at the New Jersey Marathon about 6 years ago. My co-pacer and I had so much fun getting to know each other, sharing stories with our group and I believed we were laughing for most of the race. Most of our group stayed with us and there were many Boston Marathon qualifications that day!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Running with me, AKA “Wonder Woman,” is going to be fun! If you are looking for a great experience where you will feel supported and empowered, you will want to run with me! I will give you helpful running tips, course information, and keep you in a positive mindset until the finish!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


I like to run pretty even splits. If you are hesitant about running in my pace group, I will keep asking questions and providing hydration and nutrition tips along the way so you have a great experience and better understand your body as the miles accumulate!

Anything else you’d like to share?

If you are nervous about running a marathon, you are ready! Whether it’s a 5k, marathon, IRONMAN or a 100 miler, I am just as nervous at the starting line. It’s called living and being alive!


What philanthropic activities do you have?


I am the co-host of the Two Fit Crazies and a Microphone Podcast. This is a free resource to provide unbiased information from the top exercise scientists, fitness pros, nutritionists, doctors, companies and even inspirational humans to help you live a more quality life! Each year we raise money to provide local high school students who are headed to college to pursue a career that will “change the world”  with scholarships on behalf of the show. I also developed a facial exercise and rehabilitation program called Let’s FACE It Together™ and I work with people that have facial injuries or diseases that affect the face such as Parkinson's, MS, Alzheimer’s, Bell’s Palsy and more.
