How long have you been working at PRO?
July 2018

Tell us about your running and athletic background?
In high school I competed in the 300m, and 100m hurdles, I also competed in XC. I was a competative dancer and gymnast for most of my youth, but started to like running more after I had a few career ending injuries. Ever since then I’ve been running casually, and every now and then doing a half marathon, or 5k. I recently found a new love for coaching, I am the shorewood high school girls cross country coach, and have loved being able to mentor my athletes on reaching their full athletic potential.

Favorite distance to run or race?

Hobbies outside of running?
I love fashion, and revamping old clothes. Live music, in grenre of rock, punk, or metal. I love all things science, and reading about new medical technologies, and studies, recently have been enjoying the free MIT courses online.

Current shoe(s) you are running in?
New Balance Prisim, and Brooks Adrenaline, but my all time favorite is the Hoka Clifton.

Favorite manta to live by?

What’s song is always on repeat during a run or a race?
Anything from Catfish and The Bottlemen really. Proper rock and roll.

What’s your advice for new runnings just starting out?

Run the race you are in. Meaning if it is an easy run, make it easy, if it is a hard workout run it hard.
