I have worked at Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento since 2005. I started as a coach (for the very first Shamrock’n race) and that same year I moved into the role of creating and managing the training programs division. My degree in History from UC Berkeley has in no way helped me in this role, but I love running and fitness so I figured it out along the way. My job is awesome because I get to help people find inspiration and happiness from moving their bodies. I get hugs, smiles, sometimes tears and gratitude when people cross the finish line of their first 5K, first marathon or get a new PR – and they do all the work. Who wouldn’t love that! I started running when I was 28 and except for a few babies here and there (I have four), I haven’t stopped. I have run 7 marathons and countless half marathons. I qualified for Boston twice but only ran it once because of a late in life surprise – did I mention I have four kids? I love a lot of things but mostly my awesome husband Hubert, my sweet kids Anna, Caroline, Will and Stella and running!
