I am 27 years old from Columbus, Ohio. I work as an ICU Nurse and I am currently pursuing my master’s in family nurse practitioner.
Why I chose to run NYC with Herren Project: It has always been a dream of mine to run the NYC marathon. I have been running for about six years now, and this will be my first full marathon. I am running in honor of my brother, Derek, who lost his life earlier this year to substance abuse. Running has brought me a lot of peace this past year. Herren Project aligns perfectly with the kind of charity I wanted to run for in order to raise awareness for substance abuse.
Outside of running, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family, friends, and my goldendoodle, Scarlet.
I feel honored to run with Herren Project, and I am honored to help bring awareness to those who are impacted by substance abuse every day.
