Brief Biography
I was born and raised in a very large family in Western New York, on the shores of Lake Erie. Although I ran track in high school, I did not really acquire a true love for the sport until I was in my early twenties. After receiving my Bachelor's Degree at SUNY Buffalo, I attended graduate school at Fordham University in the Bronx, New York. While at Fordham, my love for running flourished, as I was able to fall in love with running through the enchanting Central Park. I ran my first marathon in New York City in 1998. In 2003, I met my husband and he convinced me to leave my life in New York City behind, so I packed my belongings and headed to Huntsville, Alabama. I have been a Catholic school teacher for the past eleven years and currently teach at Pope John Paul II Catholic High School in Huntsville.
