ABOUT ME:Screen Shot 2018-08-09 at 8.48.27 AM

I am a wife, mother of four children (12,7,5,4), and Physical Education Teacher, and Track Coach at a middle school. I have always loved running from the time I was small. My Dad was a big runner during his time. In 2009, I started racing in local races and really enjoyed it. I also found out then I had a natural talent and placed 2nd in a series on 10 races in Charlotte, NC. I took some time off from running to have children, but remained active. Two years ago I picked it up again and last August started working with a coach to run a marathon, which was a lifetime goal. A few bumps in the road during training, but last March I set out and ran the Myrtle Beach Marathon. I placed 6th ouT of the Females with a time of 3:18 and good enough to qualify for Boston in my first marathon! Since then I have ran my best times in every distance from a 5k to a half. Getting stronger and faster is my drive to keep going. I love showing my students and my children you can do hard things, but you have to put in the work to get there!


The Myrtle Beach Marathon placing 6th overall and 3rd in my age group and qualifying for Boston. Also last April the Run United Half in Aiken placing 3rd overall with a 1:31, which qualified me for New York!

There are so many companies out there that sell all types of products, however OS1st is more local to me. ( Hickory, NC is not that far) and I love supporting local businesses. Along with the fact that I love the plantar socks and can’t wait to try other products.
