My journey as a Smile Train Alumni Ambassador began in 2014 competing as a member of Team EMPOWER for IRONMAN Arizona. It was this experience that shaped an unforgettable relationship that lead me to pursue becoming an Alumni Ambassador. As I enter my fourth year with Smile Train on the Executive Committee, I have had the opportunity to witness the power of a smile and work with passionate people who share an inspirational vision.

Athletically, I was a competitive swimmer for 15 years, competed at Olympic Trials in 2008 and several National Championships along the way. Collegiately, I swam at a NCAA Division 1 school at California Polytechnic State University. I have also been a sponsored triathlete and member of Team TriggerPoint since 2014.

My husband and I have lived in Oregon for the past five years and I currently work in Cardiac Rehabilitation helping patients recover from cardiac procedures.

I am extremely excited to continue my relationship with Smile Train Team EMPOWER to help our charitable team grow and share my experiences with new members on their journey to becoming a part of our Smile Train family!
