Angela competes as an elite age group triathlete, practices as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist, and is a Certified Triathlon coach. Born and raised as an endurance enthusiast she has always been an active member in the endurance community. Sport has played a significant role in her life having grown up as a competitive swimmer and distance runner. Angela raced her first triathlon at the age of 8; she continued to grow up through the ranks of Kids of Steel triathlon, Junior Elite racing, U23 & Elite draft legal racing and now is settling into long course racing satisfying her love for endurance sport. Angela competed for the University of Guelph Varsity swim team as a distance freestyler and still uses her residual swim speed to often be the first out of the water regardless of gender.

Stemming from an interest in both science and sport Angela graduated from the University of Guelph with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Human Kinetics in 2011. Finding fascination in understanding the function and biomechanics of the human body she continued her education at the University of Western Ontario obtaining a degree in Pedorthics.

Rounding out the 2016 race season Angela has raced a total of 199 triathlons in her ongoing career, a large majority of those races resulting in overall podium finishes. Angela has a strong understanding of biomechanics and physiology. She loves chasing big goals and enjoys helping others do the same.
