I am many things; a daughter, a sister, a coach, an athlete, a naval engineer, a Coast Guardsman, an officer, a friend, a dog mom, an Olympic Weightlifter, a competitive swimmer & long distance triathlete, and much more. I was born into a military family, that bounced around the world, and was raised as a competitive swimmer on the track to swim D1. However, in 2011 I decided to vear a little from my parents track and join the military via attending the Coast Guard Academy (D3) in 2012. I put my athletic career on hold and focused on my military career. In 2016 after commissioning and taking a break from athletics; that winter I found my way back into a pool and fell in love with a local swim team, while a coworker introduced me to Weightlifting. Picked up triathlon after striking a deal with a teammate and never stopped (with the exception of deployments out in the middle of the ocean). Here I am now in 2022, a multisport athlete and active duty military balancing life and my drive for athletics.
