Swimming was the gateway sport that lured Liana into the triathlon world. She swam competitively as a kid on both club and varsity teams and was captain of her high school swimming and diving team. Liana picked up cycling in college and after too many years of simply dabbling in the separate disciplines, she decided to put them together and join the DC Tri Club. Liana views coaching for the DC Tri Club's masters swim program as a way to give back to the DC triathlon community. Through coaching, she hopes to share her passion for the water and develop a new generation of lifelong swimmers!
