April is a dedicated mother to three beautiful children, occupational therapist by trade, loving wife, and ambitious runner. April loves to be a cheerleader to everyone around her, encouraging her family and friends to go after their dreams and do what it takes to accomplish their goals. She has been fortunate enough to be taken in by the local running community where she can motivate other runners and be motivated as well.
April hasn’t always been into fitness. She spent her college days eating Mexican food, working a vast array of part-time jobs, and climbing to the top of student organizations at UT Martin and UTHSC while completing her Master’s degree. After working in healthcare and observing the effects of a poor diet and sedentary lifestyle, she found a passion for fitness, especially running, and a penchant for nutrition.
She has a preference for running on the trails and some of her favorite races include the Ouachita 50K, Grayson Highlands, and the Walking Tall 50K. April recently completed her first 50 miler at Tunnel Hill finishing 10th overall female.
April somehow finds a way to get her training miles in (most of the time) while juggling motherhood, a full time job, and negotiating training schedules with her husband who is also an avid ultra runner.
April doesn’t strive to be THE best, just to do HER best.
