Words to live by: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Why you choose to run for PRT: I loved the energy of PRT long before I joined the team. I was drawn to the close-knit group of women who work hard together, support each other, and are always smiling and laughing. I feel privileged to be part of such a unique and special group of women. 

What I like to do besides running:
  I'm a self proclaimed nerd, so if I'm watching TV it's probably Star Trek and if I'm reading it's probably Game of Thrones. I also enjoy riding my beach cruiser up and down the San Diego coast with my husband and exploring San Diego's rich craft beer culture.
