Hometown: Watersmeet, MI

Background: After running injured for my last 2 years of high school, I decided to take a break from it while attending college at Michigan State University.  Once in medical school, I found my way back to running as a convenient way to stay active despite a hectic schedule.  My subsequent move to San Diego, with its strong running community, inspired me to start training and racing at a more competitive level.
