INTRODUCING THE 2016 LAS VEGAS GREAT SANTA RUN AMBASSADORS:
I was born and raised in San Diego, California, but have lived in Las Vegas for just over a year. I completed my Bachelor’s in Exercise and Wellness from Brigham Young University, where I met my husband. We have a son who will be turning one in January. I LOVE all things related to health and wellness as well as serving others. Being an ambassador for the Las Vegas Great Santa Run combines those two passions! I know that Opportunity Village does much good for Las Vegas and I am excited to be a part of such a great cause.

Tom is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, and when he is not busy telling people all about the Opportunity Village Great Santa Run, he enjoys reading, fishing, travel, and helping others.
