A Baltimore native and graduate of NDP and University of Maryland in College Park, Deirdre bought her first pair of shoes from Charm City Run while home visiting Baltimore from her job training dolphins in the Florida Keys. She returned to Baltimore to train dolphins at the National Aquarium in 2005. She became a part-time employee and full-time member of the Charm City Run family soon after when she stopped in to replace her shoes. She had taken up running in college as a means of staying in shape and getting outside. After 10 years in dolphin training, Deirdre was thrilled to leave one passion to pursue another and help Charm City Run expand to the downtown location as the store manager and coach of Charm City Run full and middle distance training groups
Over the years of involvement with CCR she has been committed to the Charm City Run energy and passion for the running community and she is a well-known face at local events. She loves the downtown fitness community and you can often find her checking out any new local studio or gym, but her favorite spot will always be a run along the Inner Harbor Promenade.
Deirdre is an avid runner, cyclist, trail-junkie, and yogini.
