I’ve been an avid runner for over 17 years. I originally from Chicagoland but I moved to Alabama 5 years ago when my (now husband) got a job at Auburn University, where he works as Research Associate/Fish Biologist. I’ve worked in public health for over 10 years and I currently work as linkage Coordinator at an HIV clinic. I love my job. I’m an Ambassador with Run 4 All Women and it’s been the best experience, since I’ve always dreamed of combing my passion for running and public health/social justice. I’ve always been intrigued with Picky Bar products since I have a difficult time finding nutrition I like for running. My favorite distance is the marathon and I’m hoping to get into ultra running next year. I was supposed to run my first 50 miler in 2020, but then COVID happened. Ironically, I’ve never shared too much about my running on social media because it felt like ‘bragging’ but I’m moving past that.
