I ran XC and track four years at Lafayette College in Easton PA. I went from being a 18:50 5k runner to 17:00 and broke the school record in the 5k while I was there. My sophomore year of college I got 7th in the 10k at the Patriot League Conference Championship and my senior year I got 3rd place which was one of my proudest running accomplishments. I was the Captain of my Cross Country team my junior and senior year. I was the Henry Richard Jahn Trophy Recipient – Awarded annually to a member of the track team who, by vote of the track team and approval of the track coach, is determined to have contributed most to the track team by virtue of leadership and ability. I went on to complete my eligibility in grad school at Towson University and ran XC and track there. I continued to prove all my lifetime bests including running sub-17 in the 5k (16:57) and 9:43 in the 3k which is a school record for Towson. Running is still a huge part of my life as I am finishing up grad school I work as rhe Recruitment Coordinator for a non-profit that helps physically disabled individuals participate in mainstream running and racing events. I also am a part-time Assistant Coach at UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County). I LOVE RUNNING!!
