Hi! Thank you for checking out my page! 

A little about  me... 

I was born and raised in the woods of Minnesota, but made my way West to Idaho and discovered my love for the mountains. I have been trail running as long as I can remember, as trails are the natural gateway to many great adventures.

I am a dog mom of 3 (Sage the Pitbull - "Jaws", Kenna the Husky - "Grandma" and Suka the Husky - "George." These three are often romping the mountain tops, traversing the ridges and swimming in mountain lakes with me!

I am a full time Occupational Therapist and currently work with some amazing staff at Idaho State University in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. My job is incredibly flexible to permit my running passion and I am incredibly grateful for this!

I am so thankful for my Sponsors, specifically Nike Trail,  Runner's High Herbals, Naked Running Band, LEKI USA, Insidetracker and Suunto. I couldn't train and compete the way I do without their support!  My Sponsors match and support my training and racing philosophy of HAVE FUN FIRST, value and pamper our bodies - as we only get one, and chase your dreams and always find adventure! My mantra since high school has been RUNHAPPY!
