My dad forced me to go out for track my freshmen year of high school, promising that I could quit after one season. After placing second in my section meet that year I knew I couldn't quit and have never looked back (Thanks Dad!). Since then I have spent the last four year competing for UCSB and am stoked to now be joining the Aggies for my post-collegiate pursuits. My favorite part about running is that it provides me with a sense community, while giving me opportunity to be outside and explore places in ways few other things can! 

Fun Fact: Now the assistant Distance Coach at UC Santa Barbara 

Favorite Aggie: My former high school teammate Hannah Dorman!
