Ultrarunner Goes to Key West

Buddha said, “If you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path.” 

My lifelong search for purpose has led me here. My mission is helping individuals and leaders have more intentional and exceptional lives.

I explore personal growth as a Christian who believes anything is possible, a veteran who adapts and overcomes all obstacles, and an ultrarunner just crazy enough to put it all to the test, like running across Tennessee.

My Guiding Principles

  • Success does not equal significance. Significance comes from serving others.
  • Believe in something greater than yourself. I follow Jesus.
  • Own your life.
  • If you’re not getting better each day, you’re getting worse.
  • Compounding wins over the long term.

My Background

In the Army and Army Reserve, I served in South Korea, Qatar, and Afghanistan. Inspired by mentoring Soldiers, I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education, teaching high school for five years. 
 
Burned out in K12 education, I refocused myself on teaching others to be better in their careers and fulfilled in their lives.
 
Always challenging my limits, I’ve run more than 16 ultramarathons, finishing all but four. A recent test of grit was a 35-mile run from my front door to the ocean.
 
I attempted a pilgrimage along the Appalachian Trail, but injury sent me home after 706 miles. I dream daily of those remaining 1500 miles.
 
Married and raising a baby girl in Orlando, Florida, every day brings me a new lesson and appreciation for what it means to live a meaningful life.
