Bio

I grew up in Portland, OR and swam and ran in high school. I went to Iona College for undergrad, where I studied abroad at the University of Oxford, Blackfriars Hall. In May 2016 I graduated from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and am currently a Family Medicine intern at Womack Army Medical Center at Ft. Bragg, NC. My research interests include heat injuries, sports medicine, patient activation, super-utilizers of the hospital and emergency services, and overall well-being of individuals.

I started triathlon when I was injured from running during my first year of medical school. My running background and remote swimming experience led to immediate gains in the sport, and I started racing for the US Military Endurance Sports Elite Team in November 2014. I raced as a first year professional this past season. Whilst I accomplished much less than I had planned due to injury and adjusting to life as an intern, I am excited to see what I can do in the coming years.

My biggest goal for the next three years is to continue to make incremental gains across all three disciplines while working. Follow my blog to see how I balance intern year with my personal and triathlon lives.
