I am a mother, runner, and special educator. I run to push myself mentally and physically, but the number one reason is the joy it brings me (mostly haha). I truly love to run and am happy when I can inspire others to try to run or move their bodies in a new way. This past summer at summer school I started and co led the “Rogue Road Runners”, we had a fun and pushed ourselves from whatever level we were at. None was left out regardless of ability. The young people has a fantastic time while learning to succeed (whatever that meant for them) while supporting and helping others. I work in special education as both a Teaching Assistant and in young people’s homes. Everyone is capable of greatness in their own terms, in their own way, and deserves dignity and respect. I love modeling and promoting diversity, inclusion, and anti oppression and am always looking to learn and grow.
