I'm from Denver, CO. I started running track when I was in middle school. My events were the 100, 200, 4*100, 4*200 and long jump. I attended Overland High School and graduated from Eaglecrest High School. I also ran for HCF Flames Club team and finished with the Colorado Flyers. I attended college at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I went placed in Regionals and went to the NCAA Championship my senior year. I graduated from there in fall 2008. In my last semester of college I was an assistant grad coach and after graduating I continued to volunteer for UNLV. I still continue to work out and look forward to being the strength and conditioning coach for Mack Track Elite Sprints Jumps and Relay Club.
