Maine is the state that I will always consider home. I was born and raised in southern coastal Maine until I was 13 years old. My family moved to the Mid Hudson valley in New York State the winter of my 13th year. However, a year or so later, my parents purchased a second home in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. I lived in New York during the year, but we also spent summers and holidays back in Maine at our second residence.
Currently, I live in southern Maryland, with my husband, daughter and two dogs. I have been an elementary school teacher for the last 17 years.
Running has always been a huge part of my life. I started running in middle school, mostly as a sprinter. In high school I had a very influential and inspiring track coach. Today, I run for health, clarity and confidence. My running has brought great friendships and networking opportunities! Today, I’m a RRCA certified running coach, and a member of two local run clubs!

I’m passionate about living a natural, healthy and organic lifestyle. Supporting companies and businesses that Make a Difference in the communities and lives of others matters greatly to me! Through running and living a healthy, active lifestyle, I hope to inspire my family and friends to stay active, healthy and fit!
