I started out as a runner and earned a scholarship to California State University- Northridge where I ran cross country and track. Along the way I got into triathalons as well as mountain biking. By 2001, I was racing mountain bikes professionally, and one year later won my first Xterra off-road triathlon. I went on to become the most successful female athlete in XTERRA history with 37 wins, six national titles and one world title.

In 2008, I was diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma that had wrapped around my sciatic nerve. Doctors told me I'd never run again, my pro career was over and I'd probably never ride anything other than a stationary bike. After multiple surgeries, radiation, cancer returning once, and bad infections along the way, I have been cancer free for 10 years. I had to learn to walk again despite having drop foot in my left leg (can't feel anything below the knee) but was back on my bike within 3 years. After giving birth to my twin boys in 2010, I won a gold and silver medal at the Paralympic Games Rio 2016 for cycling.

I coach over 30 athletes in off-road and road triathlons and am super passionate about endurance sports. My hobbies include mountain biking and riding dirt jumps with my sons and watching Blacklist, Gotham, and Hart of Dixie.

Perseverance: Through cancer or disabilities


My cancer diagnosis ended my ability to run and my Xterra off road triathlon career, but that wasn't the end of my story. As a proud Paralympian, I am available to talk about overcoming a terrible diagnosis, having to relearn or train differently, and what it's like to compete professionally with a disability.
