Foundation Role

Together we can achieve amazing goals! I look forward to having fun, working with you to raise money and helping enhance our community in a variety of ways.

Professional Background

I have been in the medical field for 14 years. I enjoy helping others and seeing them through their healing process. I have volunteered for many events and love to donate my time and money to those in need. We all need to take care of each other in order to thrive.

Hobbies and Interests

Give me something new to accomplish and I am in! I love a good challenge and a great adventure. Let's play outside! Running (road or trail), hiking, cycling, swimming, waterskiing, playing soccer and participating in the occasional softball game are all things I love to do.

Where I Grew Up

Mission Viejo is my home town. Born and raised. I have ventured away and lived in Antalya, Turkey; Pacific Beach/San Diego, Ca and San Clemente, Ca.

How long in OC Trail Tales

I started running a few years back, but never anything over 5 miles. My friend had a great idea to train for a 1/2 marathon. We completed AFC's finest in San Diego. After the race I was exhausted and could barley walk back to the car. Lets just say there was room for improvement and I wanted to do better. The Beach-Cities-Challenge seemed like the next best thing to train for. We found this fun group-run on Mondays nights and we were hooked. Needless to say, we joined OCTT. The coaches are fun, informative and motivating. With their help and training, we not only finished the Beach-Cities-Challenge, we completed our first marathon. I have been with OCTT since March of 2012. Since then I have also completed my first 50k and a most memorable rim to rim to rim Grand Canyon run.
