Born in Port Huron Michigan on a cold winter morning. I love swimming, water sports and biking. I started competitive swimming at an early age of 4 and it has created my willingness to win. I grew up in the Maryland metropolitan area and often frequented the beach-fronts and of Maryland and Virginia area. Graduated from Quince Orchard high school in Maryland and moved to Arizona in early 2000. While attending Arizona State University I achieved degrees in microbiology and psychology. I am a local US Master swimmer part of the ASU Swim Devils. With a passion for the outdoors, nature and exploring local events. I love hiking in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve or seeing the wild horses by the Salt River. I am an avid dog enthusiast and enjoy hiking with my canine. In past summers and time off I volunteered at Dream chaser a local horse rescue and helped coach swimming for the Special Olympics. I am also a member of SAAR (Scottsdale area Association of Realtors).
