I’m back! I have always had a passion for running and took my passion to the next level in 2019, completing the TCS New York Marathon with the Team for Kids.  As all of my friends said to me before running the marathon (knowing me very well), this was not going to be just a one time thing – and of course right after I wanted to run another.  I fulfilled my dream of running the Boston Marathon in October of 2021 and am excited to do it again in April to benefit Boston PAL once again. PAL helps provide the best possible opportunities and outcomes for Boston’s under-resourced youth.  Extraordinary youth become extraordinary leaders. Please help me in teaming up with Boston PAL to supporting the city of Boston and its members.

Hello Everyone! It is an honor to run for Boston PAL for the 126th Annual Boston Marathon. It has always been a dream of mine to run the Boston Marathon. Boston PAL is very close to my heart, as it is one of my passions to work with youth in the community, especially through sport development and the game of basketball. My very good friends (BPD ladies, you know who you are!!) do AMAZING work in the community daily to empower our leaders of the future! I currently work as a Nurse Practitioner at MGH and teach part-time nursing to students at Massasoit Community College. With my spare time I enjoy working at local basketball camps and clinics with the Boston Community. Thank you for your donations and helping me achieve this goal!!!

Hi everyone! I am thrilled to have the chance to run in the Boston Marathon once again and to support Boston PAL. Boston PAL has been providing life-changing opportunities to the youth and disadvantaged populations throughout Boston neighborhoods since 1985.  I am a skier, sailor and mom, depending on the season 😉 I work as a Data Scientist at Santander Bank with a great and supportive team. I grew up in Winchester watching the Partridge Family and playing outside till the street lights came on. Some of you might remember those days. Yes, I am training and can finish the race, come watch me! Your donations help push me forward down the road to Patriots Day.  Keep them coming so I can get there!
