I’ve been running since High School cross country, where my love for the sport started! Ran my first marathon in 2003 and the rest is history! I love the confidence, strength and community running has given me. And I started coaching to help others find that same love!!!I am a UESCA Certified Run Coach, have been running competitively since 2003, and have been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. I am passionate about helping other runners achieve their goals. From beginners to seasoned runners tackling new goals, I am here to help you be the strongest [mentally & physically] runner you can be [and have fun doing it]!I live in Chicago with my high school sweetheart husband, our daughter, and our cat.

Have you ever just felt exhausted? Toward late August of last year I noticed my body was just “off.” I was a good month and a half removed from my last race, so I thought by now I should be recovered. Unfortunately, I was dead tired in the middle of the day for no reason.
