I am a runner, elite OCR runner (obstacle course race), hiker and outdoors lover in general. I have been physically active my entire life and always looking for ways to have a healthy body and mind. I am also an elementary school art teacher and I like to combine all of my passions and share them with the world and specially with my students. I like to promote a healthy lifestyle and I try my best to lead by example. I am also a volunteer running coach for the Girls on the Run program at my school, and I share my experience as a runner with my girls and teach them the importance of believing in themselves and never give up on their dreams.
