Though Helen stopped swimming around the age of 16, she pursued a very involved sports career as a sports reporter! She grew up in the state of Nevada and was very competitive in her swimming years.
Swimming has helped shape her become the person she is today; someone who loves working hard, challenging herself, setting goals and working as hard as she can to achieve them.
‘While my swimming career was abruptly cut short as a teenager, I recently returned to swimming after taking 13 years off from the sport. I want to try to achieve my childhood dream of qualifying for Olympic Trials.
I quit swimming competitively in 2006 after competing in Junior Olympics when I was 14 years old. From there, I only swam for my high school 3 months out of the year my sophomore and junior year” shares Helen.
After she retired from swimming, she wanted to conquer her biggest fear in life: speaking to people through her love for sports. Helen then created her own sports radio show that was broadcasted on NBC Sports Las Vegas.
Helen finds joy and passion in helping athletes and swimmers improve. One of her main focuses is to give support and help young kids achieve their athletic goals and dreams. She wants to use her experience to encourage positivity, determination, heart, surrounding yourself with a great support system, and believing in the power of your mind.
