Describe your best marathon memory.


Seeing my entire running group and kids at mile 25 of the A1A marathon and running in that last mile with me the first time I qualified for Boston. 

Why do you pace?


I have used pace groups to achieve some of my goals and it is such a huge help. I want to return the favor.

Tell us your best pacing experience.



Why should someone run in your pace group?


I am well known for being able to hold a conversation throughout the entire marathon! I will help motivate you and push you to stay on pace as the miles get harder. You WILL get your goal!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Enjoy it. You trained hard to get here and the race is your reward.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Smile, it makes you run faster!

I have participated in and volunteered with Team in Training and also DetermiNation (American Cancer Society) I also support and help out with 100+ Everglades Dogs, a team dedicated to rescuing abandoned dogs from the Everglades. We got our rescue dog Scooby from them.
