Did you participate in track or cross country in high school or college?

I ran track in high school — sprinter — and briefly in college (less than one season).

How long have you been running?

I’ve been running, off and on, for 50+ years. I haven’t run for the past two years due to a back injury. Outside of running, I engage in the following physical activities: weight training, biking, kayaking and swimming.

 What’s your favorite race?

My favorite race is the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, GA. Locally, I like the St. Pete Beach Classic and our own Manatee River Run.

What do you consider to be your top running accomplishment?

At the age of 14, I was on a four-man team that set a national record for the 400-yard shuttle relay.Larry Smith

Why are you involved with BRC?

Until my injury, I was involved with BRC for the training opportunities (beach and bridge runs). Now, I continue my involvement to stay connected to the sport while I heal.

How long have you been on the board?

I’ve been on the board for two to three years and am on the events committee. I like to volunteer at the various running events.

How have you seen BRC positively impact the community?

BRC provides well-organized and safe running activities for the Bradenton area. Our various donations to local charities are important and give the club a purpose outside of just running.

What is your career?

I am Director of Client Services at Kevil Valuation, LLC. We’re involved in valuing acquired companies and assets. I am also a member of Bradenton Kiwanis and various kayaking groups.
