Triathlon was my first love and entry point to the world of endurance sports. After roughly a decade of racing across all distances, I found myself looking for new challenges and started to shift my focus to ultrarunning/trail running. While I still enjoy triathlon, and have some unfinished business in the sport, I have found myself the past few years, feeling at home in the woods and on the trails, putting in the big miles necessary to compete in ultra distance races.
I feel that when combining my first hand experiences with my passion for training & racing, I get the most joy out of being able to share these things with my athletes and help them along their own journeys.
I attribute a lot of my success as a coach to the foundation that was laid out for me by my first coach in the sport, AJ Baucco. Absorbing knowledge from him and emulating the skills that I saw working for me first-hand provided me with a huge spark when I first started coaching.
I have coached a wide variety of athletes, from World Championship and Boston qualifiers, to beginners looking to cross the finish line at their first race.
The universal theme with my athletes is building a trusting relationship and learning about them as people beyond their athletic goals. Striking balance is critical to success.
I know what it is like to have a family, kids, a full-time job, and still have goals that are important to you in this sport.
Aside from coaching, I am a running shoe geek. I do gear & shoe reviews for Believe in the Run and am always up to provide a recommendation.
