I am a Ph.D. in sociology. I do research on social vulnerabilities to disasters. I swim daily with the TAC Titans Masters (a USMS team) in Cary, NC, and average between 3800-5000 yards per day. I am an avid competitor in all of the freestyle events, but I absolutely love the distance freestyle events. I also compete for Nepean Masters in Ottawa, Canada in Canadian swim events, and will be representing the USA at the FINA World Masters Championships in Fukuoka, Japan. In addition to these two international events, I hope to represent Israel at the European Championships in 2023. I compete annually at both USMS short and long course nationals, and at Canadian Nationals. I also swim for the USA Swimming team, TAC Titans at USA Swimming events..
In addition to work and swimming, I will bring an "added twist" to Team INFINIT. I have Crohn's disease that requires both medical and nutritional management. I am currently taking biologics (Humira), in addition to several other (non performance enhancing) medications to try to keep the disease under control. While swimming is truly the best medication for me, I have to be very careful with my diet. I eat a ton of oatmeal but rely only on INFINIT products to keep me going. I have multiple water bottles on deck with me every day. One has INFINIT Cold Brew (my favorite!), and the other has either INFINIT Strawberry Lemonade, Endurance, or Speed in it. My health presents major challenges, but using INFINIT products and striking the balance between medical management and sports has saved my life.
Unfortunately, much of 2022 was spent rehabbing an injured foot. I am now back in the water and am excited to be racing at the Rowdy Gaines Masters Classic in Orlando, FL in October 2022! I will be swimming all of the freestyle events.
Even though I have not been able to compete this year, I have been training in the weight room four times per week, and have been promoting Infinit products avidly. Most recently, at USMS LCM Nationals in Richmond, I served as an official (while in a boot), and was consistently running out of Infinit products and stickers in my effort to spread the word!
I am a competitive athlete. My schedule is booked solid through 2026 with swim meets all over the world!
