Hi! I grew up in Portland, Oregon, but now live in San Francisco where I work as a rocket scientist/engineer at an aerospace company locally here in the SF Bay Area. I have an M.S. in Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and have 5+ years of experience working in the tech industry. I have been in many different roles and have experience mentoring and coaching employees and have an interest in teaching.
My other passion is with endurance events, specifically running and training for marathons. I have been a long time runner and have completed 100+ road and trail races including a 50 mile ultra-marathon. I am very active in the local running community as a race pacer for many local races and involved in several running groups in the area. I am also a certified running coach and do some part-time work in personal training and coaching.
