Health care administrator at community health center and totally enjoy it. Don't see it as a job but rather my life's ministry!!! I'm honored and humbled to lead and serve the persons I do.
Love a great laugh and enjoy being around positive, honest, intelligent, hardworking, people to keep me sharp and grounded.
My Tri Story:
Have successfully completed 1Sprint and 2 International Distances. The last ID I did was the Make-a-Wish Foundation Sea Colony Tri at Bethany Beach, Delaware. Ocean swim was cool!!! I enjoy the spirit of teamwork, encouragement and support among total strangers; that's a beautiful thing....for life's sake!!!!
Lost a friend/colleague in his first tri in Portland back in '05, Bill Woolverton. We talked on Thursday before his race (he was on a team and just doing the swim portion) and I encouraged him to simply swim his race...at his pace...not to get caught up in the flailing of hands and legs. His race was the following Sunday and I e-mailed him a congratulatory note. On Monday I received word that he passed. Sooooo, whoever reads this, keep the whole tri experience into perspective...ENJOY YOUR LIFE!!!!

Stay hard and keep hittin' it!! Its also a great way to meet some really cool people and relieve a heck of a lot of stress. I noticed that can make better decisions after processing them during a run,too!
