Michaela was born & raised in Omaha, NE. Her love for running comes from years of playing soccer, center-mid. If it’s 100 degrees out you can for sure catch Michaela running outside! Her first race was the Cowtown Marathon in 2015. This past year, after having to sit out of running due to two kidney surgeries in two months, Michaela was a finisher of the 2018 New York City Marathon!
