Primary area of responsibility is Racewalking Coordinator."

"I am looking forward to working with the board, its members, volunteers and the runners/walkers that attend the races.

"I have been a part of the New Orleans area running community for 15+ years & being a part of the NOTC board for the past year has been rewarding & fun. It is exciting to see our community come back together & get back to normalcy post pandemic. I look forward to another great year serving our running community with the NOTC!"
"This is my second year on the board and I am fortunate to be given the opportunity to serve the running community. It has been such a gift to work with such wonderful people including other board members, volunteers and the runners themselves.
