“I was born and raised in Denver and have been playing sports my entire life. I attended Regis Jesuit High School, where I played volleyball, basketball, and ran track. Upon graduating in 2017, I signed to run with Division I Saint Louis University and entered their doctoral physical therapy program. While at SLU, I only competed in four meets due to ongoing injuries (bilateral fractures in my feet, tibias, and femurs). I spent two years in Saint Louis before taking a medical leave of absence to move back home and figure out my health. In August of 2020, I received an official diagnosis of an autoimmune bone disease called CRMO and began a treatment plan that has greatly stabilized my health and made running again a reality. That same fall, I transferred to Division II MSU Denver, where I am currently competing again as well as pursuing a degree in Exercise Science. I became a personal trainer because I want to help others make their own fitness comeback from injuries, prevent chronic illness, and enhance sports performance. After graduating from MSU Denver in 2023, I hope to eventually attend Physician Assistant school and specialize in orthopedics or rheumatology, as well as conduct my own research on autoimmune diseases.”
