I grew up in Virginia, swimming year round beginning at age 9. I continued my swimming career at the University of Kentucky. I first got into triathlons a few years after my swimming career was over, somewhere around 2003. From 2003 -2005 I would do about 2 to 3 triathlons a year, never seriously training for one. In 2013 I decided to get back into racing, simply to do something other than train with no goals to reach for. I love the camaraderie of training and racing the sport of triathlon brings. I look forward to pushing myself to another level in the coming years and I look forward to being on a team with like-minded goals.
