I'm a stay at home mom/entrepreneur that loves to encourage people to challenge themselves physically. From a very early age, I was athletic (my mom soon realized this at about 2 years old when I was literally bouncing off the walls; she quickly signed me up for gymnastics at the advice of my pediatrician). I eventually became a professional triathlete, triathlon coach, and have a degree in kinesiology. I started competing as a professional in 2000 and retired in 2007. My race resume includes everything from sprint to Ironman distance races.After retirement, I completed an MBA program. Upon graduating, I decided to forgo navigating the worst job market since the Great Depression and instead launch an iPhone App on triathlons. I now have two apps out (First Time Triathlon and Triathlon Trainer) and am in the process of developing other fitness apps. The apps have allowed me to do what I truly enjoy: encouraging people to challenge themselves physically, whether it’s completing your first Pilates class, running your first 5k or finishing an Ironman triathlon.Besides training, I am also obsessed with fashion. Whether it’s haute couture or thrift store finds, I enjoy it. This includes fitness apparel – which I spend a lot of time wearing, as you might guess.
