I am originally from Hampstead, Maryland but am now a Californian! I started doing triathlon after graduating from Syracuse University in 2012. Since then I've gotten to travel the world racing against the best! In the past 4 years I have competed in the Rio Olympics, finished on 8 WTS podiums, won my first WTS race in Hamburg, and finished in the top 5 of the World Triathlon Series in both 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2017 I finished 2nd at the Grand Final and 3rd in the World Triathlon Series Standings. I am stoked that I've gotten to do all this with my husband and photographer Tommy Zaferes. Currently I am being coached by Joel Filliol. I am looking forward to training through another Olympic cycle in the hopes to compete in Tokyo 2020. I also would like to start dabbling in the longer distance non draft races starting with some half distance races.
