I am from Longview, WA.  I lived there while attending Clark College in Vancouver, WA.  I chose to commute to Clark because the community college in Longview didn't have a cross country team.  Next I transferred to Western Washington University.  I ran on the WWU team for three years.  I graduated with a bachelor degree in biological anthropology and I will be attending occupational therapy school fall 2016.
