Coach Dugan, Head Coach
Coach Dugan is married and has two kids: Evan 12 and Emmi 4. She has been a teacher for 7 years, 5 at Roswell. She played all types of sports in high school, including cross-country. In college she played softball at Mercer University. She enjoys all types of physical activities but always gravitates back to running. She has trained for a marathon and two half marathons, but was only able to run one of the 1/2’s due to injury. She understands the hard work and disappointment that can go into training. Her goal is to inspire kids to want to become life-long runners. She fully believes running should be an outlet to relieve stress, but to have fun while doing it!
