Amy joins the Ragged Mountain Racing Team after a lifetime of competitive soccer. While in high school, her Fairfax, VA travel team won Nationals and followed up with a 2nd place national finish before graduation. Amy was a member of the U18 National Team pool and trained at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado. She also competed for Annandale’s Indoor Track team and found success in distances from the 400 to the 1000. She qualified for Indoor Nationals her sophomore, junior, and senior year and excelled in the 800 and the 4X400.

At UVA, Amy began to love running. She would run on her own before classes and occasionally after soccer practice. In college Amy suffered from compartment syndrome and ultimately had surgery, which kept her from playing soccer for her final season.

Following graduation, Amy continued to run casually, but directed her focus on her career and family. In 2008, Amy decided to train for her first 10 Miler. This led to a half marathon later that year and her first marathon in the fall of 2009. She has found success at a variety of distances and continues to set PRs. She hopes to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Marathon trials and she is also optimistic about competing nationally as a Masters runner.

Amy is happily married with 4 children and works as a Physician Assistant. Her favorite activities include running, coaching U12 and U10 girls soccer teams, and playing piano.
