Just ask my mom, I've been highly active in most sports since a young age! Since 2005, I have been racing & adventuring at a high level, mostly gravitating towards trail & mountain ultra marathons. I have finished Western States 100-miler four times (once in the Top Ten), the HURT 100-miler three times (once in the Top Three), Waldo 100k three times, UTMB, Cascade Crest 100, & many more! I absolutely love the sport of ultra running, & have dabbled in mountaineering, triathlons, long distance fast-packing (such as the entire Oregon PCT in 8.5 days), stand-up paddle boarding, & try to keep the fire burning hot by balancing out self-organized adventures with competition. I have one daughter who was born on my birthday (Aug. 28th) in 2010, which was the best gift ever!

I would say that my favorite adventure to date is when we rented a motorhome and traveled through New Zealand for seven weeks, exploring both the south and north islands, exploring this unique country and culture!

An athlete I admire is Kilian Jornet because of his humble qualities and sheer joy for movement and outdoor activity, as well as being a fierce competitor and father.
