I grew up in Texas and after receiving my Doctor of Chiropractic degree with a specialization in Pediatric Chiropractic in 2001, moved to the coast with my husband. I began coaching swim in 2002 and would continue to coach off and on over the next 20 years. I competed in swimming for 10 years as a youth and went back to competing as an adult in 2016. I began competing in triathlons in 2019. I have multiple coaching certificates that include not only swimming, but nutrition and triathlon. This is my 5th year coaching Long Beach swim team.
