Teacher in Evansville, Indiana
After a 22 year international sports career in track and road racing I have the unique distinction of being in 2 Halls of Fame in 2 nations. The New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame and the Running USA Hall of Champions. I also have an MBE ( Member of the British Empire) from Queen Elizabeth II . Adopted at birth, I overcame reconstruction of both feet at age 13 years to become a champion and pioneer in women's sports. I use that story to inspire and motivate all ages in my speaking engagements.
