Hi ya'll! My pronouns are she/her, I'm from Washington and I currently go to the University of Washington. I am a third year studying chemistry.
I ran 3 years of track and 2 years of cross country in high school (the mile was my fav event). I joined Husky Running Club my first year at UW and I am now president! Although there are no in-person runs, we still do zoom core about twice a week during the quarter :) I have a tendency to get injured pretty easily so over quarantine I invested in a road bike. I want to take on swimming so I can compete in a triathlon some time too!
I hope to go to grad school for polymer chemistry, MSE, or MechE to pursue a career in the running shoe world. I currently work part-time at the Brooks Trailhead so I have some shoe knowledge if you have any questions!
Outside of running and biking, I occasionally take on some sewing projects and I love baking (and eating) banana bread.
Just a quick fact about me: iced oat milk lattes are my favorite drink in the world-- AND pair that with a cutter croissant... yes girl <3
