Black Girls Run! Austin - Ambassador

I'm originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I've been in Austin 17 years. I have 2 beautiful daughters 15 & 25 and a handsome grandson 4years old.

I have always been active in my younger years but started getting more active when my oldest daughter was diagnosed with cancer at 10 years old. It was an eye opener for me because I had to be healthy in order to keep her healthy. Now that she is cancer free my goal is to encourage others daily.

During my journey, I bumped into an awesome group called Black Girls Run which is founded by Toni and Ashley out of Atlanta GA. I look forward weekly to meeting up with some amazing Ladies as we encourage each other. After running with the group for a few years, I was offered the position to be Ambassador for BGR ATX. I have been excited every since and will continue to pour into every one I come in contact with.
