Running has been a part of Tansey's life for a long time - she's been running competitively since junior high. She recently made her Team USA debut at the NACAC Cross Country Championships in March 2017. During her collegiate career at the University of Portland she was a two-time All American in Cross Country and the 5k, as well as a school record holder in multiple events. After graduating with a degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology in 2015, Tansey began a Master's Program at Boise State and will be graduating with her Master's Degree in Athletic Leadership in May 2017 with the hope of becoming a coach in the future. Tansey is excited to continue her post-collegiate training and is focused on training to make a USA World or Olympic team in the future!
