Volunteer work

  • Federal Way Track Club, Volunteer Coach (2012-present)
  • Charitable Giving and Volunteer Lead at Brooks


After a successful career at the University of Arkansas, I returned to Seattle to take a job with Brooks Sports, Inc. Working at Brooks has rekindled my passion for running and I have recently taken back up competitive racing. With a successful 2014 summer campaign, including wins at the Portland Track Festival and USATF Club Track and Field Championships, I am looking forward to a year of PR’s in 2015 as I chase the elusive sub-4:00 mark in the mile.
