Half Ironman: St. George 70.3

Ironman: Lake Tahoe 140.6


During Ironman training, I raised awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and through friends, family and employer matches raised $1,842.21 towards Marathon Goddess‘ $1M goal.  I also volunteered at the Pancreatic Cancer Action water station for the AFC 1/2 marathon this summer.

Putting two of my passions together!

October marked a year volunteering at Rancho Coastal Humane Society.  I am in my happy place when I am there surrounded by my furry friends and wonderful volunteers and staff members!


January will mark my one year anniversary of being a plant based ambassador for Vega.  I am in my element when I am talking to people about clean plant based nutrition.  Next year I will be adding to my ambassador roles by being part of the HERevolution Multisport Team!  Looking forward to be inspired by all the ladies on the team and challenge myself in the new year!
