I'm an engineer, triathlete, and beer nerd.
I'm a life-long swimmer and my first experience in triathlon was as a swimmer in a relay in 2006. I didn't own a bike and joked that I would only run if I was being chased by something. I did my first sprint triathlon (on a borrowed bike) in 2008 and was hooked. Since then I've done many 70.3s, 3 IMs, and am now branching out into the world of Xterra (and have the scars to show for it).
I also work with several organizations to promote women's cycling, with the goal of encouraging beginners to get out and ride and and gain the confidence to race.
When I'm not out swimbikerunning, you'll find me on the ski slopes or drinking beers. In essence, I don't take myself too seriously. But what I DO take seriously is trying to be my best at whatever I do - coaching, training, and racing.
