I am a 40 year old open water swimmer, physician, and momma! I grew up participating in open water swimming, but trended toward running and triathlon during medical school and residency training! Now I am excited to turn my focus back to open water swimming with a goal of my first 10K swim next season! I live in beautiful Northern Nevada and have participated in open water events in both Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake, most recently being the Donner Lake 2.7 mile swim in August!

I love to hit the pool after getting out of a long day in the OR or after a tough night in the ICU! Introducing my kids (Fox - age 4 and Bear - age 2) to swimming has been a joy!
