I am back for my fourth year with Team Marine Parents! I am a proud wife of a Marine, mother of a Marine and sister of a Marine. In my free time, I am a volunteer with Marine Parents since 2015. It has been a blessing to give back to so many people and help them through the journey that I once traveled myself.

I had never been a runner, in fact, I always believed my body was against any sort of running at all. My husband and I started running together while our son was at boot camp. I have completed two Marine Corps Marathons, with Team Marine Parents, and last year completed the MCM 10K. Through Marine Parents, I have been blessed to learn all about a Marine that is very special to me, PFC Michael Giannattasio who lost his life while living his dream as a United States Marine. I have dedicated all of my running in his honor. He inspires me every time I run to do my best, on good days and bad. I know he is with me every day!

This year as a coach of TMP, I am running the Marine Corps Marathon and the Marine Corps Historic Half, I look forward to being back as a coach for another year with TMP.

I want to say thank you in advance for your support to my fundraising goal. I hope this year to surpass my fundraising from last year, without your help that won't be possible. Semper Fi!
