Welcome to PhD Strides!  I am the 27 year old JD/PhD Student behind this [mostly] running blog with occasional bouts of nonsense and random musings on getting a PhD/JD, triathlons, etc.

I moved to the Bay Area in August 2010 to start a PhD program in Economics.  With a love for racing already brewing in my blood, the move to the land of plentiful races just made my love for it worse stronger.

Then, in August 2013, I took a leap of faith and moved 3000 miles cross country to the Washington, DC area to start a JD program to fulfill my dream of being a professor of law and economics.  [Insert nerd comments here.]

Regardless of all this coast-to-coast business, I was born and raised a Midwestern girl, and learned to enjoy the extremes to the max — spending winter on the slopes, and summer on the lake.  It remains close to my heart.


E-mail me with questions: phdstrides [at] gmail [dot] com - I’d love to hear from you!

  1. I’ve been following you on Twitter for a long time but have never made it to your blog (I’m honest!). I can’t wait to read more about your experiences as a PhD student — that’s something I’ve always been interested in!

  2. Happy to see someone from my neck of the woods! Minneapolis is only about an hour and a half from where I live! I just recently found your blog from Healthy Living Blogs!

  3. Hi,

    I’m almost finished with my PhD and I ramble on an on about running….. It’s by far and away the best stress release I have found (other than beer and wine – and chocolate). Yay, so good to meet you!


  4. Hey! I am from the Midwest, and spent much of my time on the lake (I was a water ski instructor) and on the ski hill (I was a snowboard instructor). Then I moved to California and got my doctorate. And I also blog about running! So…we have a lot in common! :)
