Primary Discipline: Tri/Multi-Sport

Favorite Race: One of my favorite races is North Carolina 70.3. The swim is in the ocean, with a current, and is fast, the bike course is fun, and the run is awesome. It has great crowd support and is in a good location.

Biggest Accomplishments

Qualifying for the World Championships 70.3 in 2021 is something I am very proud of. I worked hard to get there and was so excited to earn a slot.


Enjoy the journey. Race day is the end goal, but it is the hours spent getting there that really define you. Savor each moment, even the really hard, kick butt, workouts. Also, find some friends that have similar goals. Triathlon training can be lonely. Embrace the workouts that you can do with others. Smile, laugh, and take in the miles.

If I'm Not Competing...

Teaching kindergarten, hanging out with my dogs and husband, traveling, and reading a good book.

One Thing You Don't Know About Me:

Before I got into running and triathlons I was a competitive gymnast.
