MtnChamps14For four years I competed as a Professional Athlete, training for and racing XTERRA off-road triathlon. I have also raced various 5K through marathon distance running races and mountain bike races, allowing me to relate on an experiential level to athletes of all abilities. I currently enjoy mountain biking, running, strength training, hiking, yoga, and meditation. I love to get outside, move, and breathe.
