"I am a 1st year pro looking to throw down with the big dogs in the triathlon game. I have a swimming background and happened to be the swimmer who could run when challenged. After graduating college, I decided to put the real world on hold and go after the dream. To become a big player on the international scene in triathlon. Since then, triathlon has turned into my full time job in terms of training, creating sponsorship proposals, racing, and promoting my own brand! I am truly living the dream and believe I can make it big...or die trying. I am not afraid to "ride and die" in a race knowing I gave it everything I had. I am one of the most positive, relaxed people you will ever meet, but come down to race day and the beast is unleashed. I walk to the beat of my own drum, don't care what anyone thinks, and am truly livin’ the dream baby!"
