We are proud to have a Run Crew full of people that live the essence of in their own lives and are spreading more joy and love in their communities.

I work at an aquarium Not just any aquarium but the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Basically the best aquarium in the WORLD!

Besides running and cats, I love the environment and our planet so I refuse all types of single-use plastics and make my own cleaning products, kombucha and sourdough bread. I’m all about living a low impact life!

I love to listen to audiobooks when I’m running. My favorite genre are thrillers. I am guilty of having jumped at the sight of a bunny, raccoon or deer on the trail because I’m a big scaredy cat!

On my 30th bday I discovered my love for outdoors when a friend of mines took me to an overnight camp out and hike into camp ground.
I used to HATE running. In fact my closest friends never imagined I would pick up running at 30 and still love it.
I have a great memory for work related stuff but yet if I have to be somewhere and I don’t write it down I just might forget. It’s embarrassing but it’s happened when I made it to a party a week early and then on the day of party getting there late. Haha! Not sure if that’s fun or just sad. Haha! I learned my lesson to write it down and ask friends to remind me. Ha!

Could totally live on Tacos alone.
Ran 22 half marathons in 2016… all with my husband.
When running with my RBFF’s, We Always Match our outfits from head to toe! #runmatchy
I teach at risk youth in my community how to set goals and develop/ strengthen their “discipline muscle” through fun exercise and nutritional programs.
Other than running… cooking is my therapy. The only problem is, I am really bad at it.
When I am not hanging out with my husband and two boys I am working at my job as a Supportive Service Coordinator with the Housing Authority. I teach tenants how to be self sufficient so they can move out of low income housing.
I lost 120lbs through diet and exercise and changed my life.
Summer of 2017 to summer of 2018 was my first year
racing and in that year I completed 10 races. I wanted to
try and do one a month but couldn’t find the last two to fit
my schedule.
I love cooking and recipe testing to create new and healthy dishes that I can share with my family and friends
