My true passion is martial arts. I never get tired of punching and kicking. Five years ago, I began instructing kickboxing. I also have a passion for endurance events. I’ve participated in numerous obstacle course races and mud runs. I ran in the Philadelphia Marathon in 2016. I completed an Olympic (plus) Triathlon in 2015 and a 70.3 mile Triathlon in 2016. My goal is to complete a full Ironman in Maryland in September. 

Last summer, I was diagnosed with MS. If I can give hope to one person through my personal journey, it is worth it. I feel blessed to be able to maintain a physically active lifestyle. This race will definitely be a challenge for me. I’m a fighter!
