I'm a running and bird nerd and avid volunteer. I spent 5 years volunteering at the National Aquarium where I worked with their Australian bird collection, and currently the race director for a local chapter of Let Me Run, a nonprofit that helps boys learn healthy relationships with themselves and others through running. My favorite running event of the entire year is Boston. My first year I got hooked and now every year I try to make it out for Marathon weekend and this year I FINALLY got a volunteer spot for race day. (And we know how that went.) At home I have two cats, two birds (adopted from my volunteer job!) and have been married for 13 years.
