Hometown: Beach Lake, PA
Marathons Completed: 14
I’m honored to be running the 2014 TCS NYC Marathon for Allied Services. Allied Services is near and dear to my heart. Seven years ago, my brother-in-law was injured in an ATV accident and needed rehab. John Heinz Rehab Center was there for our family when we needed it most. Then a close friend suffered a terrible fall and needed to utilize the services of Allied for many months. Allied Services was a “God Send” in both instances!
I live in the Honesdale area with my husband, Greg, and work as a school counselor at Honesdale High School. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Kutztown University, Master’s Degree in Secondary School Counseling from the University of Scranton, and my Principal’s Certification K-12, Master of Education, from Wilkes University. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Classroom Technology from Wilkes University.
My very first marathon was October 2009, the Steamtown Marathon. NYC 2014 will be my 17th marathon, and my 3rd NYC Marathon. Other marathons I have completed include but are not limited to: Steamtown, PA Grand Canyon, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Boston Marathon 2011, 12, & 13. I enjoy the challenge of marathon running and I tell my students “if I can run 26.2 miles you can achieve whatever goal you put your mind to.” If you told me 4 years ago I’d be running marathons, I would’ve told you that you were crazy as I couldn’t even run a mile without stopping.
I’m honored to have been selected to run as part of the Ryan’s Run 4 Team. I look forward to running through the 5 boroughs of NYC while supporting Allied Services, a tremendous organization to our local communities!!!!
