Silver, who won eight individual state swimming titles in the 50 and 100 freestyles for Bainbridge and swam at California-Berkeley, won a silver medal in 2008 after swimming in the preliminaries of the 400-meter freestyle relay for Team USA.
Silver overcame a broken hand at the Olympic trials to swim in Beijing.
For the past three years Silver has worked for USA Swimming as the athlete relations manager in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Silver will begin her new position next week in San Jose, Calif.
