Team: Try a Tri
I am thrilled to join Liv's 2015 Ambassador Team in my fourth season of triathlon following a lifelong career as a passionate athlete. I spent my youth as a sprinter, competing throughout childhood and beyond in the Junior Olympics. In high school, I competed as a California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) 300 meter hurdler and 800 meter runner as well as part of the state champion cross country team and at the University of California Los Angeles, where I still hold the 4x800 meter relay school record.
Last year, I secretly competed in what I've called my 'rogue' Ironman in Louisville, Kentucky—kicking this long-distance triathlon off my bucket list. My focus will now be on the sprint and Olympic distance triathlons.
As a wife, mother of two and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner I yearn to pursue my love of sport within my busy life. My prospects for 2015 are particularly exhilarating, as I head to Chicago in September to compete for Team USA in the USAT World Championships in the Olympic Distance.
