Bio

I began swimming summer league at the age of 5 in our neighborhood swim team, and from there joining the club swim team TIDE. My parents are avid triathletes, having competed in multiple Ironman races, and they had me try the sport out at a young age, beginning with running and swimming races. I did my first triathlon at age 7, and have since then competed in a myriad of triathlons and duathlons, ranging from local to state level. I participate in cross country and swim on the highschool level, being nationally ranked for swim and state ranked for cross country. I took second in the 2017 Virginia Highschool Triathlon State Championship, top 10 in many of my events at 2017 Virginia Highschool Swim State Champs, and top 10 in my events at 2017 Virginia Senior Swimming Championships. I plan to continue my triathlon season into the national level, qualify for junior world championships, and compete in Switzerland. Long term, I aspire to compete both in college, on the 2024 Olympic Triathlon Team, and on future World Championship teams.
