I am a travel ER nurse based in the PNW who has a passion for cold open water swimming including finishing the ice mile, marathon swimming and turning my first half ironman into a full ironman in the next year! I absolutely love the crazy, cold water swimming family that I wake up with in the Pugent Sound every morning. When I am not freezing at sea level, I prefer to experience the cold from the peaks of the PNWs highest mountains.
