Born and raised in Denver Colorado. I always watched track and field as a kid but never ran track until High School. Initially I only ran track to get faster for Football; which turned out to be a great help. I attended Montbello High School, and graduated in 1997. While at Montbello I was a member of 2 State Track and Field team championships, and I also won 5 individual/relay events.
After High school I went to The University of Kansas on a full athletic scholarship (Football). I ultimately finished with a Bachelors of Arts from Colorado State University where I also competed in Track. At Colorado State I was fortunate enough to be on the first ever Indoor Mountain West Conference Championship team. I also did pretty well individually… I still hold the CSU 100 meter dash record, and was on the school record holding 4x100 meter relay.
I still compete in Track and Field. I love working with MACKTRACK. Helping the kids reach their goals is our number one task. The 2018 season is off to a great start, and I hope to assist a lot of athletes reach a national meet this summer.

I graduated from Thornton High School and was the first female athlete to receive a full track scholarship from my school. I started running when I was 5 years old for the City of Thornton CARA team. I ran with them until the 6th grade because I also played competitive soccer. I played soccer and track for 2 more years until we found the Colorado Flyers Track club. Coach Tony Wells told me I had to choose. I chose track. Track pays the bills. I learned so much from Tony Wells and the other athletes on the Flyers team. I learned to take pride in my performance, work hard, and never ever quit.
I attended New Mexico State University for two years until I transferred to Oklahoma State University. Things happen in life and I was very unhappy at NMSU. I found my home at OSU very quickly. I had a wonderful track career but injury prevented me from becoming the track star I always dreamed of. I was very active in student life during the off season and while I recovered from injury. I had the opportunity to take nutrition classes and kinesiology classes which helped me learn how the body works and how to become a better athlete. I think it also prepared me to be able to explain and coach as well.
During the summers I ran the Thornton CARA program that I grew up in. I also assisted Coach Art Levy with Denver Lightning in the evenings. Art Levy taught me a lot about training athletes to perform well but also train the whole athlete. I worked with him in the City of Denver after school programs tutoring and providing enrichment experiences for the children of Denver.
Back to track. I hold several records at Thornton high School and hold several district 12 records. I was First Team Academic all American while at OSU I was on the Dean and Presidents Honor Roll the entire time I was at OSU. Because of my dedication to strength and endurance I was able to win awards in several weight lifting competitions. Let me tell you a secret it was easy because a big part of weight lifting is doing what you need to do in the weight room.
Currently I am medically retired from The Department of Homeland Security. In my free time I do work in my community. I am a proud Member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. I try my best to be a voice for people whose voices are often overlooked and unheard.
I joined the Mack Track Family as a coach during the 2017 spring season. I love coaching these kids because they are driven. They work hard and they want to be great. So I am using everything in my coaching arsenal to help them be great.
