I have been doing triathlons since 1997 when I did my first one, a sprint triathlon in Clermont, with my husband, Dan, a month after we were married.  Since then, I have participated in Beachside Trisport camps since its inception in 2003.  

I have competed in numerous sprint and olympic distance triathlons while also giving birth to 3 handsome boys, Jacob (2000), Cale (2002), and Lucas (2004)...  literally! It seemed like every time I would sign up for one of the camps, I became pregnant during the camp!  She competed in two races while pregnant - both as part of relay teams, running at 16 weeks and biking at 20 weeks!


Triathlons have become a passion for me...  I enjoy getting fit and watching my progress along with my training partners and also the newer triathletes I meet in the camps.  It has also helped me maintain my sanity as a mom and a wife!  I cherish the friendships I have made in the sport as well.  As much time as we spend together training, they are like my second family.  I am looking forward to the challenge of coaching and applying everything I have learned so far!


I completed my first half-ironman distance race in 2009 in Amelia Island, and just completed my first full Ironman, Ironman Florida in Panama City Beach, in November of 2011, along with co-owner Ana McQueary (under the coaching guidance of Suzanne, of course), and fellow BsTs team members Jeff Girten, Kristin Cusimano, and former BsTs coach Trish Rydson, in celebration of my and Ana's 40th birthdays last year!
