I have been running for quite a while. I have experienced a lot of success in sports and out of sports, and I accredit part of this due to the work it takes to be a track student-athlete. I hold many school records at Tabor College during my 4 years there. These include Indoor (1000m, Mile, 4×8) and Outdoors (800m, 1500m, 4×1, 4×4, 4×8). I also graduated from Tabor earning my degree in PE/Health-Teaching with a minor in Coaching. I am looking forward to the journey of teaching at Meade Elementary School that I am starting, and the plan God has ahead for me in teaching and running.

My main goal is to try and reach the 2016 Olympic Trials in the 800m. My goal for this season is to break the 1:50 barrier, and then go from there. I also plan to do this all while teaching and coaching, and demonstrating to my students what hard work can do.
