I started swimming in 1996 on Anaheim Aquatics because my older sister Melissa was already on the swim team. Then I continued at FAST Swim Team under Kevin Perry. I have competed from age group up to college. I broke 5 High School Records for Loara High School, won MVP all 4 years and was a CIF swimmer. In club swimming I focused on the 200 breaststroke and 400 IM.
Outside of the pool, I graduated from Whittier College and Korea University in 2012. I have my B.A. in Global & Cultural Studies. I can speak Tagalog, Korean and English. I love to travel and experience new cultures, I am an avid reader, a beach goer and love to try new food places! I started coaching club swimming in 2012 because of my passion for the sport and I enjoyed seeing the development of my swimmers throughout the years.
