Hi, and thanks for visiting my site. I’m a professional athlete, living in Eugene, Oregon and training with Team Run Eugene. My diverse athletic background has led me to run the steeplechase in track, and, more recently, to compete in trail and obstacle course racing. While completing my BA in Exercise Science at Willamette University, I earned multiple track and cross country honors and also played soccer. I went on to earn All-American honors in the steeplechase while completing my MS in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon. As a post-collegiate athlete, I have competed at USATF Track Nationals twice in the steeplechase. In 2014, I adventured into the trail and obstacle course racing scene. My first trail and obstacle season included winning the Warrior Dash World Championship and the Xterra Trail Run World Championship. I plan to continue to compete at the World and National level in track, trail, mountain, and obstacle course racing.
In addition to training, I coach Track and Cross Country and teach Human Physiology classes at the University of Oregon. I predominantly work with the distance runners. My teaching experience includes classes in anatomy, human physiology, exercise physiology, and athletic performance. As a professional athlete, coach, teacher, and exercise physiologist, I love using my knowledge and experience to help maximize my own athletic potential, while also supporting and educating the athletes I work with and the community to help them achieve their health, fitness, and athletic goals.
