I am a proud Indianapolis native truly “living the dream” of serving my hometown as a morning news anchor on WISH-TV, News 8. When not on-air, I am found training with my Jordan YMCA MultiFit teammates for the next triathlon or running race.

I am from Northern Michigan and currently live in Bloomington, IN fulfilling my doctor of optometry degree at Indiana University. Following the footsteps of my parents, I began running at the age of 3 and ran collegiately at Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame for 4 years. Since graduation in 2017, I have ran 3 marathons with the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon as my third marathon in 2019. This course will always hold a special place in my heart, especially since I qualified for the 2021 Boston Marathon by 16 minutes!

If you run, you’re a runner. That’s my favorite part! This will be my first year participating in Indython, and my first Monumental Marathon. I’ve loved the other events in the past, and can’t wait to join this year! You can find me in the mid to back of the pack with a smile on my face and a cold drink in my hand after!
