Olivia is excited to
join Excel's staff as one of our lead instructors and to share her love
for swimming with others. Her experience includes three years of working as an instructor
at the Vanderbilt YMCA in Manhattan with both youth and adults of all ability levels.
Olivia entered the
world of competitive swimming in middle school when she joined the
St. Sebastian's CYO team before transitioning to the LaGuardia Twisters USA-Swimming
club team in high school. Olivia continued her competitive swimming career at Stony Brook
University in their NCAA Division I swimming program. Upon graduating from college, Olivia
joined our Excel Swimming masters team.
Olivia's love for
swimming introduced her to triathlons in 2011. Since then she has earned
numerous age group wins and top five overall performances. In 2015, Olivia qualified for and
competed at the USA-Triathlon Sprint National Championships and USA-Triathlon Women's
Collegiate National Championships. She also qualified for and represented Team USA at
the prestigious ITU Sprint Triathlon World Championships in Cozumel, Mexico in 2016.

hiking, cooking, surfing and spending time with her family and friends.
