I am originally from Oregon, and started out as a volleyball and tennis athlete, and pursued a collegiate volleyball career at Eastern Oregon University (EOU). I ended up discovering a love for running around my sophomore year, and was lucky enough to get to walk on to the track team middle of the 2011 season and begin to develop some-what of an aerobic base, and eventually find my niche as a steeplechaser.

Post college I dabbled in Crossfit for a while, even getting my L1 and coaching for a couple of years before I finally found the beautiful sport of Obstacle Course Racing. OCR is where I finally felt at home, and where a varied sport background gave me many tools to draw from.

I discovered OCR in 2016 when I tried my first Spartan Race, the Las Vegas Super, which I had signed up for simply to have a new challenge. I finished 6th place for the elite women, and after that I have the typical obstacle racing junkie’s story of becoming hooked, and continued to sign up for more and more races, and began devoting many hours of training to improve on my weaknesses.

Since then I have slowly been growing in OCR and have continued to compete and focus on the US National Series, where I have continued to always place in the top ten, even finding the podium at Utah in 2018, and 2 other top 5 finishes in the 2019 series. The US National Series is my favorite since all the top athletes from the US and Canada participate, and the competition is always at the highest.

Just coming off a 6th place finish at the Spartan North American Championships, my eyes are set on a top 10 finish at the Spartan World’s Race in Tahoe this year. Beyond racing, I love to spend time with my two doggies and my husband, whether it’s out running, hiking or hunting, and spending time with my wonderful employees at my Coffee shop, Bugles Espresso. Other favs include paddle boarding, backpacking, naps, and time with family 🙂
