I was born and raised in the Syracuse, N.Y., area, where I currently reside and work as a personal trainer and coach.

I began running competitively with my high school’s indoor and outdoor track team, racing distances from 55 to 800 meters. I continued competing on the track through college, after which I graduated to racing 5Ks on the road. I took to “distance” running rather quickly, and moved up through the distances until I ran my first marathon at age 26. Since then, I have completed about 10 marathons, including Boston in 2010.

While I have been running on trails for training runs since high school, I truly discovered the sport of trail racing (and my love for it!) in my late 20s, and – looking for a challenge beyond the marathon – ran my first trail ultra about five years ago. From that first 50K, I have completed about 18 ultras, mostly on trails, of various distances up to 100 miles. I also compete in triathlons, although only a few each year as I have to squeeze them in where I can around my ultra schedule. I plan on competing in my first Ironman at Lake Placid in 2017.

I had some breakthrough ultra performances in the past several years. I was the USATF Niagara Ultra Series champion in 2013; and finished first at the Virgil Crest 100 in 2014; seventh and sixth, respectively, at the USATF National Championships for Road 50K and Trail 50 Mile in 2015; and fourth at the Mohican 100 in 2015. I am very excited about joining the MPF RNR team to improve upon my performances from last year, and to run and compete with a fantastic and talented group of athletes.
