BELIEVE in yourself, DREAM big, be FEARLESS and get out of your comfort zone.....because when you find the STRENGTH to continue on....the magic begins.

HI! I’m a mom of 6 amazing, athletic kids who have all been in track, cross-country and other sports.  I’ve been running since I was a little girl.  I believe it started when I had to chase my horse around the pasture all the time so I could ride him.  🙂

Over the years, I have competed in races from 5k’s, 10k’s, half-marathons, marathons and then in 2012 entered the ultra-races of 50k’s, 50 milers, 100k’s and 100 milers.  

I am very fortunate to live, work and train in the high-country mountains of Challis, Idaho – next to the Lost River Range, Frank Church Wilderness, Boulder White Clouds, Sawtooths, Pioneers & more.

My coaching began as a middle school cross-country coach for Vallivue Middle School in Idaho for 12 years.  In 2005, I took my cross-country girls team to the USATF Junior Olympics in Rhode Island and they WON the championship!  I was given a coaches award for being National Cross Country Team Champions.  I have continued to mentor kids and other women I have met through racing, hosting running camps and through the Oiselle Team.  I have also been a High School Track Coach.  It is incredibly rewarding to help others set goals, work to achieve them, learn from the journey and succeed.  I find the most joy in spending time with my family and helping/coaching others.
