Hello! I'm Meg. I was born and raised in Southern California and my that is where my love for water began. I was a swimmer in high school and taught the swim team and swim lessons throughout my undergrad. I did my undergraduate at the University of Arizona and that is where my love for adventure and appreciation for nature really started. I'm not a fan of summers because the hinder my ability to be outdoors but the beauty in the desert is amazing.

After graduate school, I got a job working at a NASA facility on the ASU campus working on NASA missions. Space has been my passion since I was a child. I always thought I'd go back to California because my family lives there but I met a wonderful man while I was in Arizona and that was that. Still not a fan of summers though.

I did my first triathlon in August 2019. It was just a sprint and it was much harder than I thought it was going to be but I really enjoyed it! I was hooked. It is such a challenge to balance 3 sports. Swimming is still my favorite of the three. Although, I have to admit, as I get older the cold water is really hard for me to get into. I really enjoy biking as well and the run is the real pits for me! I'm not good at it.

2020 really messed my racing plans up as it did for many. So, I'm looking forward to racing again in 2021! Hopefully!
