I began running in 8th grade. I graduated from Caledonia High School in 2017. After high school I was blessed with the opportunity to continue my education and athletic pursuits at Calvin University (College when I started). Since I graduated college in 2022 I have been trying to find my way in the post collegiate running world while balancing my professional and personal life. My revised running goals include qualifying for the 2028 U.S. Olympic marathon trials.
