I have been swimming competitively since the age of 7 and still love this sport! I was a member of my high school and college swim team and in 2006, was inducted into Miami University’s Athletic Hall of Fame for my swimming accomplishments. After college I had success in triathlon and currently compete in a few open water swims per year. I’ve placed in the top 3 overall female category at the Big Shoulders 2.5 k wetsuit category for the past 5 races and even managed to win it twice-most recently in 2022 at age 57!!I love the sport of swimming and still teach and coach in my free time.
As a result of being part of this team, I’ve rekindled my love and involvement in swimming and am now the Wisconsin Masters Swimming Open Water Chairperson. I also recently took Masters Coaches Certification Level 1 and am taking Level 2 in early October.
I am so proud to represent this team and love meeting teammates at various races—thank you for this opportunity!
