I am an elite ultra-runner, having competed and earned podium finishes in well over 60 races in the past 5 years in various distances and categories. Some of my finishes include: Georgia Jewel 50,'18 (1st); Cumberland Plateau Stage Race, '18, (1st, CR); Strolling Jim 40 Miler '18 (1st); Hellgate 100k '17 (3rd); Georgia Death Race, '17 (3rd); No Business 100 '17 (1st Overall, CR)/Savage Gulf Marathon, '17, '18 (1st, CR)/Yamacraw 50k, '16 (1st), Yamacraw 20k '17 (1st, CR).
My love is for trail running and helping people find ways to get the most out of the training time they have available. As a very busy mother to 4 children, I understand how hard it can be to balance challenging yourself as an athlete and continuing to meet goals, while still having and enjoying a family, professional, and social life.
I am RRCA certified as a running coach, as well as NCCPT certified as a personal trainer. I also hold a Level I Certification in Sports Nutrition. I got my start personal training, and I am an advocate of utilizing the benefits of strength training in developing a strong, overall runner.
I have coached athletes to successful finishes in numerous races, including: Georgia Death Race, Ouray 50, and UTMB. I also coach a high school track distance running team, as well as with a post-season Cross-Country Club Team.
