About me

Occupation Registered Nurse
Location Fort Collins, Colorado
Introduction I started running in 1984 and ran my first ultra in 1991. I wanted to run Badwater ever since I heard about Ben Jones cooling himself down with an ice-filled body bag. I achieved my longtime dream in July 2008 when I crossed the Badwater finish line in just over 47 hours. In 2011, I ran the race again, then returned on foot to Badwater, a round trip of 270 miles. My health, fitness, ability, and desire to run ultramarathons are a gift I can give to others who face challenges to their health and well-being. I am a registered nurse working in oncology, and I'm passionate about empowering people to live life at their best. My dream is to transform health care so it is truly about health and care, and bring the nursing profession into modern times by elevating the grassroots voices of working nurses. Life is an ultra, and every finish line is the starting line of the next adventure.
