Being on the trails is my happy place. Joy, ease, and creativity spills out of me when moving outside, as it does for so many of us trail runners. A Washington state native, I currently live in rural Alaska where the trailheads are never crowded, but often snow covered. It’s a new challenge I’m trying to roll with as I train for my next big event, the 2022 Hardrock 100. When not running or crafting new stories for UltraSignupNews – I’m a wife, mom of a teenager, a toddler, and a Weimaraner, a yoga teacher, and grad school student. It’s a blessed and full plate, and I’m so grateful to now be sharing this trail journey with each of you.
Trails have always been a part of my life. I was fortunate to grow up in a state with plenty of them, Vermont, and a father who frequented them. My love for trail running is two pronged, it provides great memories with friends and has been one place where I can tire out my mind to the point of care free bliss. After graduating the University of Vermont I was lucky to call Carbondale, CO and the Elk Mountains home for 8 years while I was the Associate Publisher and eventual Publisher of Big Stone Publishing, which brought to life both Trail Runner Magazine and Rock and Ice. You will not see my name on any bylines, but I am busy on the back end working on all things business development and brand partnerships. While I secretly wish I was the one creating the content, I find great joy in supporting the talented people I work with by making sure their work is seen by the world and that they get paid! Trail running has given me so much and it’s my goal to help more and more people discover what it can do for them.
