As Executive Director for this amazing organization, I am so fortunate to combine two of my passions: running and working with kids. To lace up my shoes alongside these GOTR girls and watch the perils of adolescence melt into the pavement with every lesson and every foot strike gives me boundless joy. Crossing a 5k finish line for the first time is life-changing for many of these girls. Witnessing them grow in character and confidence along the way is life-changing for me.
I want every girl, no matter what age, to be confident in the decisions she makes in life. I take an active role in GOTRLV to make a difference because I believe that this program is making a positive impact on young women in Las Vegas. I am endlessly dedicated to inspire one girl at a time to embrace her inner spirit and lead a joyful, happy and confident life. During my time as a coach and having witnessed the program in action, I know we are making this difference.
As the mother of three girls, instilling a sense of self confidence, empowerment, and a "can do" attitude is a priority for me. Working with Girls on the Run Las Vegas has allowed me to see these areas made a priority in the lives of hundreds of girls in the valley. Seeing our GOTR girls work so hard during the season and joining in their celebratory 5K at the end of the program fills my heart with such joy. I am excited for the day when my own girls are old enough to be part of the GOTR program and show off their GOTR spirit!
So many times in life, I have heard that I can be anything I want to be and do anything that I put my mind to. These are important lessons for all girls to hear but it’s even more important for them to have the opportunity to prove it to themselves. That is one of the things that drew me to be part of GOTR LV. I love the concept of reaching out and impacting young girls’ lives during such a pivotal time in their self-discovery. Every member of the GOTR team that I have had the pleasure to meet and work with has a genuine passion to empower these young ladies. I am blessed to be part of that. I have two children of my own and I hope that they feel empowered every day in every way. A wise woman once said that the word “CAN’T” should be considered the worst curse word in our language and I have to say that I agree. GOTR teaches these girls that they CAN.
