I am a hard-working, motivated, and creative person who is always looking for a challenge. I grew up playing soccer and participating in competitive sports, and started focusing on running when I started pursuing my Masters Degree. I am in my fifth year as an elementary school teacher. I find that I do my job best when I have balance in my life. Running, yoga, travel, and cooking help me to achieve this necessary balance. I am also a crossword puzzle junkie and I have no self-control when it comes to pedicures and massages!
