My leg was amputated when I was 2 because I had a condition called fibular hemimelia. I grew up not really knowing any different. I played t-ball & volleyball, rode bikes, climbed trees (much to my dad’s dismay), and did pretty much everything else my friends were doing. I started competing in triathlons in 2014 and discovered this to be a new passion. I started with sprint distance triathlons and completed my first Half Ironman in June of 2016.
I’m also a disability rights attorney at a nonprofit called Disability Law Colorado, co-founder and President of LIM359 – an activities-based support group for people with limb loss/different, an ambassador captain for Skirt Sports and their #realwomenmove campaign, and a member of TeamMPI.
