What is the best career advice you ever received?
Do what you love and follow your passion and you won’t work a day in your life.
Why did you choose your profession?
I have multiple jobs because I feel like I have multiple passions. I love working and connecting with people, which is why physical therapy appealed to me. I also love pushing my body to the limits, which is why I continue to race as a professional on the Ironman triathlon circuit! I know how much sport has given me and how much confidence I gained racing at this level and I want to help others do the same, which is why I also coach.
What motivates you to give back to your community?
I have traveled and raced all over the world – and it is a pretty magnificent place – however, there is nothing as special as a tight-knit community. If you are in the right community, it feels like family. I feel like this community has given me so much that it will take a lifetime to try and give everything back to it.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Find the best things about you and the best things about life and celebrate them!
What would you like to be doing when you’re 40?
Raising a family and racing and coaching and being the best physical therapist I can be – phew!
