I am thrilled to join Girls on the Run because it is totally focused on empowering young women. My passion is physical fitness and emotional well-being. As Executive Director, I believe I can help to bring these things to the girls that are involved in our program. It is an honor to be a part of Girls on the Run.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Girls on The Run family. I feel it is very important for young ladies to learn the value of self-worth so they can grow to become joyful, healthy, and confident women which is the heart of our mission.

Girls on the Run has been a significant part of my life since 2009. I joined our organization because I believe in the importance of teaching young girls confidence, healthy body image and how to be a positive member of the community. I've stayed involved because I've seen the impact our program has on girls' lives.

I joined Girls on the Run to help make sure every girl knows they can do anything they put their minds to. It has been inspiring and uplifting to watch young girls uncover and unleash their potential and achieve goals they didn't even know they had.

I began coaching with Girls on the Run in 2012. I had heard about the program and loved the mission so much I knew I had to get involved. As an avid runner and counselor, I could not wait to tie my two passions together! Every girl deserves to feel they are enough, they are strong and they are confident. That is what this program is all about! I have seen first-hand how this program can change girls’ perceptions of themselves and increase their confidence in their abilities. I believe that every season I coach girls become stronger and I do, too. They teach me as much as I teach them!

I joined Girls on the Run to make a difference in girl’s lives. Every girl can embrace who she is, define who she wants to be, rise to any challenge and change the world. It’s amazing to be a part of an organization that helps girls live and believe these GOTR words.

Girls on the Run’s mission and values resonate deeply with me on a very personal level. As an elementary school student, I was the victim of daily bullying by my classmates during recess for being overweight. I was a very self-conscience girl and did not realize the potential I had inside of me. I only wish that a program like GOTR could have existed at my school in New Orleans, La. For some time now, I have wanted to help children, specifically young girls, just like me in some capacity through volunteering or even starting my own non-profit organization for children battling similar issues, but have not found a good fit for me until now. Through my professional experience and personal values alignment with GOTR, it is my hope that I can help young girls see their own true self-worth and potential through a joyful, confident life.

As a former college athlete and current runner, I know firsthand the benefits to a healthy, active lifestyle; however, what I love most about Girls on the Run is how our curriculum and coaches tie a healthy lifestyle into being confident and joyful. What a wonderful way to prepare young girls to be leaders, innovators, and compassionate members of our community!

At its core Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident with the hope of unleashing their limitless potential. I understand the importance of this as a father raising a young daughter in today’s world. I joined Girls on the Run to help bring these critical values to girls in our community who otherwise might not have exposure to them.
