Williams, a native of Vermont, received her undergraduate degree in 2003 from Colby College, where she competed at the varsity level for four years and was an NCAA qualifier in 2000 and 2003. She won All-NESCAC honors in the 1650, 500 and 200 freestyle relay and served as team captain her senior year. Coach Williams started her career as the assistant coach of both swimming and water polo at Macalester College (St. Paul, MN).
