sport: Running

I am an elite runner and NCAA DI cross country/track & field coach currently pursuing my goals and dreams in Cincinnati, OH. I was an NCAA DI runner for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 2007-2011, before attending Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania where I received my Masters, became a DII All-American, and started my coaching career. Upon finishing my degree, I pursued my goals as a professional runner for 2 years in Rhode Island before finding I lacked balance in my life and missed helping others in pursuit of their goals and dream. Now I am living my real dream as a coach at the University of Cincinnati, while still training with the ultimate goal of making USA and Olympic Teams at the longer distances, 10k-marathon.

To all those pursuing big goals: Work hard, be smart, have faith, and go confidently in the direction of your dreams!
