In January 2018 I ran the World Marathon Challenge (7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days) to raise awareness and $50,000 for the International Dyslexia Foundation


Why? Because at the age of five I was diagnosed with Dyslexia and Sensory Processing Disorder, and with the support of my incredible family and community, I beat the odds.  I graduated from USC and then went on to earn two Masters degrees.

I kept this part of my life secret for a very long time, afraid that the stigma of a Learning Challenge would alter how people saw me and the opportunities that I'd have.  Now, I'm sharing my story and your support means the world to me; dyslexia is not a limiting factor, it's a superpower.

Running 183 miles over the course of 168 hours on seven continents was the dream. In 2018, I competed and completed the World Marathon Challenge, running on behalf of Team Quest and International Dyslexia Association. This challenge encompassed everything for me. It had triumphs, adversity and an epic finish amongst family and friends.
