I competed in my first race in 2003 at the Pueblo, Colorado YMCA and have been hooked to triathlon ever since. While living in Valdosta, Georgia, I raced on a regular basis with a focus of exposing as many people to the sport as possible. I started a club Moody AFB in 2006 and although that was just a group of friends and didn’t grow much, it provided a foundation for a more structured workout environment and team philosophy. While completing my Masters Degree in Physical Education at Valdosta State University, I also started a collegiate club through Campus Recreation. That team grew, and lived on for a few years. We even took a few athletes to the 2008 Collegiate Nationals in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I completed my USAT level I certification during that time. After numerous Air Force assignments where Triathlon took a back seat, I returned to San Antonio, Texas and found a great climate to take training seriously and get back into racing. Being at triathlete can be a weekend thing you do every once in a while or it can be a complete lifestyle change. I have embraced both at different times in my life. In 2018 I was named a USAT All-America and an Ironman All World Athlete. In 2019 I raced in my first Armed Forces Championship and qualified for my first 70.3 World Championship event in Nice, France. I love to help people achieve goals, try new experiences, and introduce them to things I have found enjoyable. I would be happy to work with you in San Antonio or online.
