Running Experience

Runner--Business Owner--Coach

Since 2013 I have run numerous 5k and 10k races, half marathons, and two full marathons, with thousands of training miles in between! In 2016, my husband and I decided we wanted to do something meaningful with our passion for running. Our virtual running business, Run4Buffalo, was born.  Our mission is simple, to raise money for charity, while promoting physical fitness and better health through the sport of running! I have enjoyed working with runners of all ages and abilities through our numerous events. In June 2018 we grew to expand our mission nationwide and became Medal Chasers.  Visit                         to learn more.

Between my own personal successes in running, and the people I was meeting through Run4Buffalo, I was inspired to increase my knowledge in the sport and signed up for the RRCA Running Coach Certification program. I received my certification in October of 2017 and decided that I wanted to take the knowledge I had learned, coupled with my own experience, and help others reach their goals through their passion for running.

A Little About Me

Mom, Wife, Teacher, Runner

Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, I am living my dreams. I am a high school special education teacher and the mom of two children. I have always been active and enjoy the outdoors. I played softball as a kid, and took up skiing as an adult.  I honestly never thought I'd be a runner.

In April 2013, at the age of 34, I decided I wanted to try something new. Much to my surprise my husband wanted to do it with me. I downloaded a couch to 5k program and went for it. Little did I know that I was about to discover a passion that would positively affect me in every aspect of my life!
