Evolving runner and outdoor enthusiast based near Salt Lake City, Utah with her manpanion. Running came to her in college, but remained sporadic until exposed to the community of trail. It is now constant itch to escape the office and hit the mountains. Still seeking that first ultra finish and her next challenge, she is finding joy in embracing the journey with one foot in front of the other.
