Age - 34
Occupation - Full time mom, wife, entrepreneur and Behavior Consultant with Special School District. In my ‘spare time’ I love helping others find motivation in life, health, fitness by finding a balance that works for them and their family.
Favorite Events - I LOVE running! I played collegiate soccer and have had a life-long passion for trying new sports, races, and pushing myself to the point where it’s a complete mental game. I have a love/hate relationship with anything that pushes me to the max.
I’ll try anything at least once.
Personal Records - Belleville Thanksgiving Day 5K Turkey Trot 2016- 21:18:59 (6:51 min/mile), St. Louis Hot Chocolate 15K 2016- 1:07:53 (7:17 min/mile), Frozen Feet 13.1 Trail Half Marathon 2017-1:36:02 (7:19 min/mile), Ozark Foothills 50K - 6:22:23 (12:18 min/mile)
Other Sports You Compete In - Aside from running, I still compete in soccer tournaments and leagues. I’ve dabbled into the world of triathlons, a Tough Mudder and in my past life played volleyball, basketball, racquetball (pure attempt and epic fail).
What are your athletic goals (long term and/or short term) - I never want to stop learning. I never want to stop trying. I never want to reach a point that I cannot compete. I want to complete at the age of 80 – in something – whatever my body can take.
I want to complete an ultramarathon (TWO currently on the books – 50 miles being my 2017 goal). I want to find new ways to push my body and break PRs even as I age in years. I want to show my girls that you can do anything you want, physically and mentally.
I want to help others realize their goals matter – even if you are a mom or dad and your kids come first. I want to help others define their goals. I want to help others make a plan. Then CONQUER. Repeat!
Unknown fact about you - I’m such an open book with no filter and a dislike for silence… so it’s hard to say what people may not already know… Maybe that I refused to date my husband because he was too tall and too skinny for a good 6 months or longer… I gave in. Look where we are now! Ha – I’m such a dork.
