What inspired you to run for the NPF? 

My mom’s battle with pancreatic cancer. She’s been actively receiving treatment since October 2016 and has gone through over 30 rounds of chemo and a 5-week radiation treatment.

Running mantra or life mantra?

Not sure where it originated from, but a quote I saw recently that really resonated with me is, “There’s no sense in waiting for the ‘right time’. Time isn’t waiting for you.”

Favorite place to run? Or your happy place? 

I love city running and most of my runs go through midtown Atlanta. My favorite city I’ve run in though is Liverpool, UK.

What’s your dream job? First job?

My dream job would be a tour guide at the Tower of London (or another British historical site).

If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes, whose would they be? Why?

Someone who’s royalty.

What’s one thing about you that surprises people?

I have been involved in the colorguard activity (with marching bands) since I was 14 and now teach at the college level.

What’s your secret talent?

Not really a secret but, colorguard – spinning flag, sabre, and rifle.

What’s your favorite thing to do for fun?

I love watching sports, so attending a game for one of my Atlanta teams or Georgia Tech – go Jackets! I’m especially partial to football though 🙂

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it?  

Money – because then I’ll have an unlimited supply of everything I could possibly need!

Have you ever completed anything on your “bucket list” OR Name one thing on your “bucket list”?

I recently traveled alone internationally for the first time (to the UK). It was a great experience and I was able to run my 4th half-marathon during the trip.
