My road in life took a while to figure out.
Went to school 'to learn', not necessarily knowing what to study.
Got SO lucky, my first job was at Roadtrip Nation, learning to follow my passions.
Moved to Oregon to be involved in a great running community; yes, running!
Slowly creeped into more and more cool jobs involved with sports, fitness, running and the outdoors.
Got a job with Adidas Running.. I run, travel, work and play hard!
Next will be navigating from my current role to something even more perfect for me.
I can't wait!!
Keep following my journey

Learning / Being Challenged

Day to Day

- Don't be jealous!..- I drive to an area of WA, ID or AK, spend time in running stores helping staff with customers, teaching them about products over coffee and bagels, and often run with their store group runs, then hand out prizes. Then on my way home I explore a new trail in the mountains that I haven't been to yet.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Work in retail first. Running specialty is ideal, but truly knowing how customers think and shop, seeing how management and inventory works are all important to the sales aspect of this role.
