Life's a journey.
“You can’t wait for things to be going well to start thriving.”
– Arianna Huffington
My journey is far from over. I proudly admit that I am and always will be a work in progress.
I am a mother of 3 children under 8, an Ironman athlete, a former public school district communications director, and a late-night wine and potato chip connoisseur (thus the need to create a balanced meal plan).
In 1998, I became a competitive triathlete while majoring in English at Cal Poly SLO. I have experienced top 5 age-group finishes at Ironman Lake Placid, Napa Valley Half-Ironman, Wildflower Triathlon, Des Moines Marathon, Santa Barbara Half-Marathon, and even the Davis Turkey Trot thanks to incredible coaches and mentors, an inner motivation to compete and perform, and a relentless work ethic.
In 2011, I suffered severe muscle atrophy and post-partum depression after 12 weeks of bedrest and giving birth to twins. Setting a personal goal to regain my physical strength and mental well-being, I created and followed a holistic plan that has guided me to my fittest and strongest self yet.
