I am originally a swimmer from Colorado. I met my husband in Texas during graduate school both working at the same hospital. I am now a Board Certified Sports Dietitian at a University helping student athletes recover from eating disorders, so nutrition is a big part of my life. Growing up a competitive swimmer, the transition to Ironman four years ago has been such a rewarding and fun adventure! What started as a competitive “dare” with my husband now has become our favorite lifestyle. I love meeting and sharing the journey of triathlon with not only my husband but those athletes in the community. I never thought I would be able to do an Ironman, I am now about to do my third full Ironman this November in Cozumel, have completed eight 70.3 recently being 70.3 World Championship in France which was a race of a lifetime. Sharing my journey with and inspiring others is very endearing to me.
