Brigitte was an All-American track and field athlete at the University of Connecticut. After college, she was lucky enough to have opportunity to run professionally as an athlete for the Atlanta Track Club and moved to Atlanta in 2015. Since joining the club, Brigitte has continued to invest in her passion for running through training for 5k road and track races but also through helping new runners train for races around Atlanta. Brigitte has volunteered for training groups for races including the Peachtree Road Race put on by the Atlanta Track Club, helping beginners and advanced runners achieve their goals. Brigitte loves running because it serves as a way to push one’s limits to places that seem impossible at first. Brigitte welcomes all who have goals of completing a race, wanting a healthy lifestyle change or thinking about becoming a runner to join her in a sport that has continuously brought her fulfillment and passion.
