Nathan Hale Cross Country Assistant Coach

About

I am passionate about all things running. It has been a life long love of mine and I want to continue to develop my skills and training to improve as an athlete. I started competing as a freshman at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, Washington and went on to be a top runner at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. In college I was able to take my love of running overseas with me as I studied abroad in London, England and competed on the Imperial College London cross country team. Over the past year I have been an active CNW member and have seen big improvements in my performance since joining the team. I am eager to further challenge myself over the coming year.
