What quote/saying do you lean on when the going gets tough?

When I’m in a lot of pain, I just have to push through it and recognize that it’s going to be temporary.

What or who inspires you to push yourself to the next level?

My son is my inspiration. I want to set a good example for him; the importance of making a goal, working hard for it and achieving it. Along with bringing him to see me race and see him race.

What are some of your other favorite hobbies when you are not training or competing?

When I’m not training, you can find me gardening once the snow melts! I also enjoy rock climbing with my son! Come winter, you can find my on the ski hill zooming down as fast as I can with my son or baking fresh bed on a really cold day!

What is your proudest athletic accomplishment?

My proudest moment would be placing 2nd in Elite at the Spartan Mont Tremblant Ultra in 2023! I had been training for months for that race. I knew it was going to be a hard course to even finish but I pushed through lots of tough moments that day and ended up taking 2nd place.
