When I’m not doing science, I spend time with my husband, our twins, and our dog. We enjoy the outdoors and our home in the mountains.

I’ve also been an avid runner for most of my life. I was a Virginia state champion miler in high school, ran for a Division I nationally-ranked cross-country team in college, and raced indoor and outdoor track throughout college. Since then I’ve run numerous marathons, 50k’s, and 50-milers. I recently completed my first 100-mile trail race.
