My coaching philosophy centers on the belief that running should be an enjoyable and fulfilling journey. I emphasize the importance of becoming a balanced athlete, focusing on not only physical development, but also mental and emotional growth. Consistency and patience are key components in my coaching approach, as they are fundamental to long-term success in the sport.

I encourage my athletes to set challenging yet realistic goals, helping them push their boundaries and reach new limits. Above all, I view running as a powerful tool for self-discovery and personal growth. Through running, athletes can learn more about themselves, their strengths, and their resilience, ultimately becoming not only better runners, but better individuals as well.


While my direct coaching experience might be limited to guiding friends and family members, my journey as a professional runner has been an invaluable source of knowledge and insight. Through my own experiences, I’ve gained a deep understanding of the nuances of training, the significance of mental strength, and the importance of personalized approaches to running. As a professional athlete, I’ve encountered various challenges, triumphs, and setbacks, all of which have provided me with experiential wisdom that I strive to impart to those I coach.

My coaching style is rooted in empathy, drawing from my own learning curve to tailor guidance and support to individuals based on their unique abilities and goals. While I may be in the early stages of formal coaching, my background as a professional runner has equipped me with a profound understanding of what it takes to excel in the sport and a passion for sharing that knowledge with others.


Originally from Wisconsin, I’ve found my true home in Minneapolis as I pursue my dreams as a professional runner. My journey into the world of running began when I realized my knack for speed on the soccer field far surpassed my technical skills. This newfound passion led me to compete at the Division 1 level for Iowa State University, culminating in the honor of earning all-American recognition during my senior year.

Today, I proudly represent Puma as a sponsored athlete, focusing on the marathon distance while embracing the diversity of road races ranging from 5k up to the marathon. When I’m not running, you’ll often find me enjoying moments with friends, family, and my two adorable dogs, catching up on the latest TV series, exploring local breweries, or reading (sometimes listening) to good book.


I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by several inspirational individuals on my journey as a runner. My current coach, with their unwavering calm demeanor, has been a guiding force, providing the steadiness and wisdom I need to excel in the sport. Their ability to instill confidence and perspective has been instrumental in my growth.

Equally impactful are my dedicated teammates, who have shown me the true meaning of resilience and commitment in the face of adversity. These remarkable individuals have left their mark on my running experience, shaping me into the athlete I am today.


My racing history, like most people has had its highs and lows. My debut Marathon at the 2021 New York City Marathon was an unforgettable experience, where I exceeded my own expectations, securing 7th place with a finishing time of 2:26:18. However, I learned a valuable lesson in my second marathon, battling through injury against my better judgment. This setback highlighted the non-linear path of running. In the subsequent years, I finished 20th at the 2023 Boston Marathon, followed by a 17th place finish at the 2023 Berlin Marathon. Along the way, I’ve also found success in some shorter distance races, which I really enjoy to break up the monotony of marathon training.
