Myrna Gonzalez Childress, who joined SAW earlier this year, is a Lead Business Intelligence Analyst at USAA, where she's worked for 20 years. She grew up in San Antonio, spent many summers in Mexico, and lived in Mexico for two years. She obtained a BS in Computer Information Systems from Our Lady of the Lake University.
Myrna is married to her best friend, James Childress. They enjoy spending time together eating healthy food, riding their Indian Roadmaster Elite motorcycle, traveling, and taking care of their beautiful home and three fur babies:
TobyJ – a pitbull/boxer mix
HarleyD – a long-haired, standard dachshund
MayaB – a French Bulldog
Since Myrna is a French Bulldog fanatic, MayaB is her favorite. She says that she will always have a Frenchie in her life!
Although she started cycling in high school, Myrna didn't ride for decades because life got in the way. After rediscovering her passion for cycling in 2010, she's found time for this great sport ever since. Myrna is a member of E2 Multisports, a local triathlon team lead by Coach Roland Moreno. She's completed six half Ironman (70.3) and two full Ironman (140.6) events! Cycling is her strongest discipline and her favorite part of any triathlon.
She loves her bikes:
Celiney - a Cervelo P2 tri bike that she's owned since 2017.
Fiona - a Bianchi Infinito road bike that she's owned since 2012.
Of course, Myrna also has a couple of dream bikes:
BMC Time Machine TT bike
The new road bike from Bianchi
Earlier this year, Myrna took a five-day Bike Trek Travel trip to Vermont! It was an incredible experience. She rode a minimum of forty miles each day, experienced some great lodging and met interesting people. The SAG support during the ride was outstanding. She'd love to take a similar trip in the future.
