WHERE SHE CALLS HOME: Hood River, OR & Park City, UT
Jax is a runner, adventure seeker, entrepreneur, lover, dreamer and doer. You could say she is one of those girls that doesn't really sit still because she loves life so much and all that it has to offer that she just has to enjoy every single bit 24/7. Her passion to inspire once drove her to do a run mission; she ran 365 days in a row to create awareness for cancer research and inspire folks to move their bodies to prevent disease. Her latest quest is to become the first woman in the world to complete the 4 Deserts Race Series Grand Slam Plus. This is a series of five 250k (155mi) foot races across the globe among the hottest, driest, windiest and coldest deserts on Earth. She is running in honor of the LymeLight Foundation.
For Jax, running ignites the soul. It makes her thrive and grow as an individual. Some days it is to sort out business as an entrepreneur owning STOKED Roasters and MARiASH MARKETiNG, and others it is for solitude or to visit with a friend. Whatever the case, she hopes her achievements, and passion for running and life, rubs off on as many souls as possible to ignite their spirits to get out there and fly.
HER STOKE OF CHOICE: "12oz quad-shot americano, with just a splash of milk."
