I graduated from the University of Tampa in '06 with a degree in Exercise Science and Sports Studies. At UT I ran X country & track 4 yrs. After graduation I furthered my education at the Georgia Mountain School of Massage. I continued my career as an athlete and raced 3 years as an elite triathlete for the Timex Multisport Team and 1 year as a professional triathlete for Team Sports Bean/NTTC. Through my education and race experience I have a strong sense of what it takes to build a program.
