I have been involved in sports since the age of 7. I began my endurance racing career 11 years ago with my first Sprint Adventure Race. Since that time I have competed in numerous 12, 24, & 30 hour Adventure Races. I was introduced to Triathlon 5 years ago and quickly became immersed in the sport. I competed in Sprint and Olympic Distance my first season but decided to try my hand at the 70.3 distance at the end of that first season. I had never, at one time without stopping, swam that far in my life. Needless to say I was extremely nervous. Then, in a shot, it was over. Not only did I have a great swim but a great race as well finishing 5th in my age group. Fast Forward 3 years and I am racing my first Ironman. It was the greatest test of patience and mental toughness that I have dealt with as an endurance athlete. It was also one of the happiest moments in my life.

I have had the privilege of introducing triathlon to family and friends and seeing the positive change it has had in their lives. I have seen this sport give confidence in people that they did not have before. I love getting to witness someone I know and coached cross the finish line for the first time. I remember that feeling of accomplishment and want to help other athletes reach that same goal and beyond. With my extensive knowledge of the human body and how it functions I know how to make you both mentally and physically strong enough to achieve your goal, whatever it may be. I have also dedicated my life to studying nutrition for athletes. I can teach you how to eat to lose weight, recover faster and race stronger. I cannot imagine my life without triathlon and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion with you as your coach.
