I’m a 34-year old lifelong athlete living and working in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
As an American expat, I have been living and racing in the country for 5+ years, and - thanks to my God-given ability, commitment and resolve toward athleticism - have become recognized within local running, duathlon and triathlon communities.
My primary role is with the Athletic Department at Grace International School, a school uniquely designed to serve and enable 350+ missionary families serving throughout Southeast Asia.
In addition to teaching Advanced Strength and Conditioning classes, I coordinate all sports teams for elementary and middle school students, coach a host of student athletes (varying in age from 5 to 19) in a variety of sports - cross country included with a team boasting 50 athletes - and assist with off-season training for other junior varsity and varsity sports teams.
By training I hold a bachelor’s degree in Nursing and a master’s degree in Nutrition/Dietetics. I am also a personal trainer and group exercise instructor.
Additionally, because of my passion and pursuit of holistically healthy living, I have come to know many friends in the thriving vegan, vegetarian and otherwise health-conscious community here in Chiang Mai (although I personally do not affiliate with any one group or diet).
Community, expertise, passion and professional role combined, I have found myself a friendly, sought resource and voice in the arenas of sport - individual and team, fitness, nutrition and natural health. I am well known amongst athletes/runners and others throughout America (especially TX, MT, and AZ) and Asia (especially Thailand).
With over 4,000 friends on FB from around the world, I have a large following of people who know me, read my posts, and seek out my advice.
Thanks for taking the time to view my racing accomplishments across ultra marathon (100 mile, 50K and 44K distance), marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K, triathlon, duathlon, and tower running events.
I welcome the chance to explore potential sponsorships and look forward to connecting with you!
