Assistant Coach - Blue Marathon Run Leader

Years running: This December will make 9 years! I joined USA FIT for my first marathon in August 2015 to train for the Louisiana Marathon in January of 2016!

Number of Half Marathons and Marathons: 12 half-marathons, 4 marathons

Favorite races: Boston! Louisiana Half! Locally: Riverside V, Log jammer

Favorite Distance: the half-marathon

Other: I never imagined I would be a runner or Love running! It became a complete outlet for me during hard times in life. I first began running December of 2010 after I had my daughter, Kinsley. I found out I could run and never looked back! I’d participated in many 5k’s and 10k’s for a long time until I decided to train for a half marathon and then a full marathon. I’ve made many friends through running and love the running community in Shreveport/Bossier. This community has taught me more about running and life! I’ve helped with Kids on the Run, Youth fit program in the summer, and have helped coach a Learn to Run Advance class, too.

My real job is an Adapted Physical Education Specialist where I’m an Itinerate teacher and work with special needs students teaching them gross motor skills that are weaknesses for them. The great thing about my job is the amazing accomplishments I see in students when they succeed!

I have a passion for helping others and seeing them accomplish their goals. Therefore, I look forward to being on the team for USA FIT this season and making a difference in a runner’s life!
