Volunteer work:  I am a middle school math teacher at Holy Rosary School in West Seattle.  I teach a junior high leadership class, and we organized service projects like coat and food drives that benefit organizations in our community. 

Personal Info:  I’ve been a runner pretty much since the moment I could walk.  I love running, and it’s a part of who I am!  My husband, Matt, and I have a 2 year old little sweetie named Ellie, and we just had our second baby, Calvin.  Getting to watch them grow is the best!  Here are some things I love: summers, Christmas, reality TV, sports (esp. pro football), bringing the kids to the park, going to dinners with friends (doesn’t happen often), ice cream, cookies, teaching math, and running (obviously).
