About Amy
From a hometown blue collar gal, to a professional triathlete and iron-distance champion, Amy is redefining what it means to be "fit, fierce and forty"!  Read on to learn more about Amy.
 Growing Up:  Being the youngest of four children in her family, Amy was introduced into sports at a young age by older siblings.  She has fond memories trying to “keep up” with her brothers and sister as they played tag in the yard or woods, wrestled in the family room, raced down the street on foot or bike, or played basketball in the driveway.  Raised as the underdog, as the story goes for the youngest in most families, She gives credence for her hard work ethic and determination to this blue collar upbringing. It has shaped her into what she is today as an adult, wife, mother, coach, teacher, and triathlete.  
 
High School:  At Hickory High School in Hermitage, PA, Amy played basketball, ran cross country and track and field.  As a hurdler/sprinter/jumper, she had earned various top medals at the PA state track meet in multiple events,  100m & 300m hurdles, and long jump. Amy ended her interscholastic tenure as the PIAA 300m Hurdle State Champion, “All-State Team” ranking and USA Track and Field Interscholastic Honorable Mention with a career best time of 43.90 in the 300 m hurdles and 14.6 in 100m hurdles.
 
College:  As a scholarship athlete at a Div-1 university, Amy, unfortunately, was unable to finish her collegiate track and field career due to injury.  Post track and field she focused her energy on maintaining fitness, teaching various fitness classes, pursuing a teaching career, and starting a family.  Amy coached high school hurdlers for many years, and has had the pleasure to see many of them reach the PA State Meet podium.  Amy was a kindergarten teacher for 17 yrs before pursuing professional triathlon and coaching.
 
Family:  Amy and her husband have three beautiful daughters and two energetic Goldendoodles who are as active as she.    Shortly after the birth of her youngest daughter, Amy started to train for marathons which has lead her to her current passion of triathlon.  
 
Triathlon:  Amy started multi-sport in 2005 and has been hooked since.  Her IM PRO debut was at the 2013 IM Cozumel, where she biked a 4th fastest bike split of the day, with an 11th overall finish.  In 2014, she moved up the PRO ranks with a 5th place at IM LOU.  Amy recently crossed the finish line at the 2015 PPD Beach2Battleship Full Iron Distance Triathlon as 1st female PRO, with a personal best time of 9:25. As an amateur, Amy placed 2nd amateur at 2012 IM Louisville, 8th place age group finish at the 2012 IM World Championships, and a 9th place age group finish at the 2009 70.3 IM World Championship.   Amy returned back to Age Group competition this season, and was the Rev 3 2017 Barrelman Aquabike and Ironman Los Cabos Champion.  She looks foward to competing at the 2018 Ironman World Championships.
 
Coaching:  Besides being a full time mother and competing professionally, Amy is also a QT2 Systems triathlon coach. She races to bring awareness to ALS and other diseases that have no cure. You can find Amy doing the "Team Blazeman roll" at the finish of all her iron-distance triathlons.   Amy looks forward to maintaining a balanced life, continuing an active lifestyle, encouraging her three daughters and others to pursue their dreams.  She continues to be inspired by the amazing people around her, to build new opportunities for herself and her family, and to see what wonderful things life brings.
