Project Description

From: North Dighton, MA

What do you do for a living?
School Nurse

How did you first connect with Herren Project?
Chris Herren came and gave a talk to the students at my school. I reached out to Mr. Herren after the talk he gave and this set into motion a series of events that have helped to save my loved one and my family as a result.

Who’s one of your running or athletic “heroes” and why?
I haven’t followed professional running until quite recently but I have lots of local runners that I consider heroes. Currently, when I see that people I know and love have found their path to recovery through running, I am inspired. Each and every one of my fellow Ambassadors simply amaze me with their determination, grit, and grace.

What’s your favorite running/race distance?
It is ever evolving. I completed my first official marathon in October 2018 and look forward to my next. I used to hate 5K’s, but then I started to push my speed and found my confidence. I now love being able to run with my oldest son and look forward to sharing more miles with my family.

What are you most proud of?
Being a mother of 3 unique smart and strong children. My children looking at me and believing that I am strong too.
