2011-2014 Tough Cookie Coach, All women's endurance sports team in Austin during my tenure I finished the Austin marathon, Austin Running club races series, 70.3 Ironman (relayed the bike and run), MS150 bike ride, Spa Girl triathlon, and local duathlons (run and bike).
In 2014, I stopped running and coaching due to injuries. I practiced Yoga from 2014-2015. In 2016 I enrolled in the Get Fit program with the UT Fitness Institute; by spring break I was unable to walk without significant pain. I was later diagnosed with stress fractures in both feet.
In the fall of 2016, Annicka asked if we could go to the Austin Stone. Hesitantly, I agreed since she was so excited. Moms from our homeschool summer soccer meetups invited me to join their weekly Missional Community. I am so grateful I listed to Annicka. After months at Austin Stone and praying for healing in April of 2017, with encouragement from my One Day Academy friends, I successfully completed a 6 week introduction to trail running program with Women on the Trails.
I was baptized on Memorial Day at the Austin Stone picnic. I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength and that all everything in my life past, present and future are only possible through Jesus.
I have three children Annicka (16), Aaliyah (14), Apollo (12). I have been married to my loving and supportive husband Chuck for 17 years. As a native Texan and Texas EX, Chuck knew he wanted to raise his family in Austin. We have lived in Austin for 12 years. I was born and raised in San Diego. I have a bachelors in Economics and a masters degree in Social work from the University of Southern California.
