Prior to arriving at VMI, Fazioli served as the assistant cross country and track coach at the University of Albany for more than three years. Fazioli was also the recruiting coordinator during her time there and helped build a men's team that swept the IC4A titles during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons. For her work during that span, she was recognized as part of the two-time America East Coaching Staff of the Year.
Fazioli began her coaching career as a volunteer assistant at Delaware before spending a year as the assistant compliance coordinator at Oregon State University. Fazioli graduated with honors from the University of Colorado in 2002.
While in Boulder, Fazioli was a member of the 2000 NCAA Cross Country Champions, and in 2004, she was the youngest qualifier for the 2004 Olympic marathon trials. Fazioli also earned recognition as a four-time member of the Big XII All-Academic Team.
