With a passion for fashion and a love for running, it only made sense to design & create my own running apparel and lifestyle brand.
I have always been a girly girl...
From a very young age, growing up in the Boston area, fashion & accessorizing has been a true love of mine. It has led to a lengthy career in the fashion industry. Included are in-depth product buying, sales and fashion merchandising with companies such as Levi's, Filene's Basement, Calvin Klein & Perry Ellis.
After starting a family in 2002, the long hours and travel became a conflict with raising two boys. I didn't want to miss seeing them grow up. So, stay-at-home mom I became.
I started my own online boutique in 2010, Sassy Notes Gifts, to keep my love for fashion alive. During this time, I started running for the first time in my life. I never imagined in a million years that my love for running would be what it has become in 12 years. Numerous short distance races, 45 half marathons & 11 full marathons. Earning a BQ & running the Boston Marathon for the 3rd time in 2022, was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life!
There is nothing like running my hometown race that just happens to be the most prestigious marathon!
Stiletto Running is born from a vision of how I want female runners to be perceived. Every woman should feel girly, gritty, pretty, fit, strong, sexy, confident & of course...SASSY!
