I have been into sports my entire life starting at age 2. Swimming was my second main sport growing up after competitive gymnastics for 8 years.

I was accepted to Bucknell University to swim for their Division 1 swim team. It was at Bucknell that I qualified for NCAAs, broke the 50 and 100 free records (that stood for 12 years), a three time All Patriot League selection and led the team to the Patriot league title 3 years in a row. I was also chosen as the top athlete of my graduating class.

After Graduating from Bucknell, I was accepted into Veterinary School where I earned my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. I continued to swim during my graduate years and missed the competitive lifestyle and team camaraderie. It was then that I started competing at a few sprint triathlons (my love for swimming never faded). After graduating veterinary school, I received a call from the Bucknell athletics board saying I was chosen to be inducted into the Bucknell Sports Hall of Fame!

My competitive nature has never dwindled, and competing in a few sprint triathlons didn’t seem like enough for me. It wasn’t until recently that I found TriDot that really helped me focus on pushing my limits and becoming a better version of myself. Over the past 6 months I have never biked faster or run faster in my life. I finally feel like I am back in full force, like the competitive days in college!

This season I will be racing Ironman Eagleman 70.3, USA Nationals in Ohio and Ironman Chattanooga 140.6. I have high aspirations and goals, and I have no doubt TriDot will help me to achieve them.

I have a wonderful husband, who was on the NC State cycle team, and is my bike guru. We have 2 beautiful children, 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 rabbit and 7 chickens. I am a true believer that anything is possible if you have the support, desire and the fire burning deep from within you. Thank you TriDot for re-lighting my fire, pushing my limits and molding me back into the athlete I once was. I trust the process!

They told me I couldn’t, that’s why I did
