Kristin Dreuth - 2019 STC President

Kristin Dreuth
2019 President

Hi, my name is Kristin Dreuth, your STC president this year and for the past two years I was your secretary. I grew up competing in the equestrian world (hunter/jumpers and rodeo), enjoyed biking and running for many years and started triathlons three years ago with my husband.

I look forward to helping the club grow, racing local races with my favorite being Santa Rosa Ironman and being a supportive and encouraging president.

Paul Miller - STC Communications Director

Paul Miller
2019 Communications Director

Kindasorta fast miler in high school, then took 20 years off for beer and cigarettes and watching sports on TV. Began running again to ‘celebrate’ my mid-life crisis. Found training for the marathon to be totally boring! Now switched to triathlons. My 1st was 70.3 HITS Napa 2017 (aka hypothermia death race) and I just loved it. Terrified of sharks and really any open water swim, unsteady tri bikes, and suicidal squirrels on the bike trail.


Madeline Journeylynn
2019 Secretary

I hold the position of STC Secretary. I have been a triathlon participant since the mid-eighties, having come from a competitive swimming background.

Currently, I am taking a small hiatus from triathlons, but hope to be back with a vengeance ASAP. I have completed all triathlon distances, but my favorite is 70.3.


Robert Villa
2019 Treasurer

My name is Robert Villa and I am your treasurer. I strive to live for each day and enjoy what a new experience will bring to lift. I often say “I’m in” to whatever idea is thrown out there for the next experience or adventure. This led me from transitioning from a running into a triathlete. I have set personal records along my journey as an athlete to include: Ironman Arizona 11:39:02, Ironman Santa Cruz 70.3: 5:03:17, California International Marathon 3:13:26, 10K run 40:20 and 5K run 19:18 just to name a few. What ever I am doing and where ever I am racing, I am always supported by my family, whom I am very thankful for. Go “Team Villa” and Go “STC”!


Sara Rivera
2019 Membership Director

Hi, I’m Sara and so proud to be part of this great club. I have many passions in life from relaxing with a good book, golfing to exploring the great outdoors with my daughter and friends. I’m new to the world of triathlons and planning to conquer my first Ironman 70.3 race this year in Santa Cruz. I want to personally invite everyone to be part of this active and supportive club that will help you achieve your goals. I am excited to be your Membership board member and look forward to meeting you all and helping in anyway I can. Please message me anytime if you have membership related questions.


Jennell Villa
2019 Sponsorship Director

Hello my name is Jennell Villa. I was a swimmer and runner when my husband started triathlons a couple years ago. When he joined STC, I would tag along to some of the events knowing that I would NEVER do a triathlon. I only hung out with the club a few times before I had decided I could do this. STC was so welcoming, fun, and encouraging it was very easy to dive right in to this sport along with these crazy endurance athletes. 
I am now proud to say that I completed my first 70.3 last year in 2018 and I’m very excited for the next one!

I am dedicated to the Sac Tri Club and I look forward to supporting and training with these wonderful group of people. Message me if you have any suggestions or ideas for new sponsors, I would love to chat with you!
