Assistant RD, Volunteer Coordinator
I was born and raised in Washington. I love the mountains whether I am running trails or playing in the snow. I found my love for running in 2005 when my youngest child was 1. Originally running road half and full marathons, but discovered my love for trail running in 2009 at my first trail race on Orcas Island and never looked back. I have run many, many trail ultras and still to this day my favorite distance is 50 miles. Over the years when I wasn't racing you could find me volunteering at races to be part of the wonderful running community. If I am not hard at work with Destination Trail or my own business, you can find me enjoying my three children or on an adventure spent running the trails in the mountains, taking photos and enjoying a good local beer!
I was born and raised in small town in Eastern Oregon. I got inspired to run by watching my brothers and sisters run when I was. After running in high school i transitioned to triathlons for 4 years before fully finding my true love.... Being out on the trails exploring the mountains surrounding me are really what makes me happy. I started off with a few road marathons and then on to a few 50ks followed by a 100k. I first met the Destination Trail Crew at the 2016 Bigfoot 200 and I have just never left.. Love being around like minded people who share the passion for the trails and mountains. Do what you LOVE and you will never work a day in your life!
I am a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician, a former infantry U.S. Marine, and a father. I continue to study medicine: hold advanced certifications; and continue to learn about myself, as I spend many hours on the trail. Nature & Medicine are my passions. I have been a Medic for many obstacle course race, motocross races, and numerous 50 milers on the Arizona Trail. My proudest moments have been as a member of the Destination Trail team as Medical Lead for the Inaugural Tahoe 200, followed by the Bigfoot 200, and the 120 Miler and 100k. The people I have met, the places I’ve been, and the adventures I’ve had have been amazing. And the journey has just begun.
