5.) Personal Information

-Why did you choose RogueAC?

I wanted to keep running after college, and since I grew up in Austin, joining Rogue AC’s awesome team was too good of an opportunity to pass up.

-What is your least favorite band?

Rascall Flatts. I still can’t get that Me and My Gang album out of my head after the 10th grade basketball road trip where I endured it on repeat.

– Favorite post-run food

Overnight oats, or if I’m really treating myself I get the Eggscape at Magnolia.

– Favorite workout

Fast, short stuff with lots of recovery is the most fun, but I also love long runs where you’re chatting with friends and look down and realize 10 miles passed by. Socializing + getting fit!

– Heads or Tails?


– Who is the most influential or inspirational person in your running? Why?

Chris Schrader, my high school coach. Classic “before I met him I was nothing!” story. Seriously. He showed me a dream I didn’t know I had about running in college, and gave me the coaching to make it happen.

– Dream job after running

I want to be at an organization where I share common values: doing your best work, going all-in on a goal, and aiming for a healthy, active lifestyle.

– Favorite TV show

My husband Jake and I are pretty into “The Americans” right now.
