Since Fazioli joined the TCU coaching staff in 2015, women's cross country and distance has seen an upward trend. In the 2016-17 season, Fazioli coached Brenley Goertzen to a breakout year, when she finished first in the 5K at the Big 12 Indoor Championships, third at the Big 12 Cross Country Championships, became the first XC national qualifier since 2012, and set school records in the indoor 3k (9:19) and 5k (16:02) and outdoor 5k (15:51). In 2016, the women's cross country team finished eighth at the Big 12 championships and earned the No.6 rank in the NCAA South Central region, the team's highest rank since 2012.
Fazioli came to TCU after a successful run as the head cross country coach at Virginia Military Institute. Fazioli headed the team for three and a half years and during the 2014-15 season, she helped the Keydets earn their third regional ranking ever. Fazioli also saw the men's cross-country team finish third at the Southern Conference Championships last year. In Fazioli's first year at VMI, she coached athletes who went on to break four school records -- including freshman Kelsey Newcomb who broke the school record in the 800-meters.
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.
