Coach Angela started swimming at age six in Palm Desert, California and began competing when she was in high school with both her club and high school swim teams, in addition to playing water polo with her high school water polo team.
Angela completed her undergrad education at the University of California, Berkeley and swam with the Cal Aquatic Masters swim team while in school. In 2006, Angela held a W18-24 U.S. Masters Swimming top ten time for 100 yards Butterfly and in 2007, she held three W18-24 U.S. Masters Swimming top ten times: 50 yards Butterfly, 100 yards Butterfly and 100 yards Freestyle. Angela was also the founding president of both the men’s and women’s club water polo teams at UC Berkeley, when they became officially recognized as University club sports in 2007.
Angela completed her first and second Alcatraz crossings in 2015 with the Embarcadero YMCA Masters and was instantly hooked! Subsequently, she joined WWS and competed in several more swims, which included the Golden Gate Bridge Swim where she was the third woman overall. In 2016, Angela competed with WWS at an international swim competition in Cuba and placed second overall in her age group for the pool competition and first overall in her age group (second woman overall) for the 3k open water swim.
Angela joined the WWS coaching team in Spring 2016 and is excited to see you out in the water!
