What I Am Passionate About

Helping People

Hope Water Project

I am extremely invested in the mission of the Hope Water Project. Our goal is to provide clean drinking water to the people of the Pokot Tribe of Western Kenya. We raise money to build wells which will provide a life source for so many people. Through clean water, these communities are able to come back to life, by building schools, medical centers, housing and so much more.

Endurance Sports

I recently completed the Ironman 70.3 race in Muncie, Indiana. I did this as part of the Hope Water Project team. This year I was able to raise over $2200. The event consisted of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile half marathon run. The training was long and grueling but it paid off as I successfully crossed the finish line!
