My goal is to offer those just getting started and experienced/competitive runners, alike an affordable, reliable, and well mapped out plan to success. My services include running programs, weight training plans, and nutritional advice. All of which I monitor and offer instant feedback. Healthy/active living is important to me, so much so that I want to reach out to others so that they too may strive to live in such a way.
I currently serve as the head men's and women's cross country coach at Georgia College, working directly with high level young people who aspire to compete on both a regional and national level. I earned my bachelors degree in Journalism from Valdosta State University, and a masters in Kinesiology: Human Performance from Georgia College. I also hold a Level 1 coaching certification with the USATF. I have over 16 years of experience in the sport of running and track & field, 6 of which are in coaching. Running has opened so many doors in my life--I want other people to have a similar experience that I've had since my youth. In my time as a collegiate coach, I've worked with four PBC All-Conference runners and four NCAA DII Southeast All-Region honorees. I've worked with women who have run under 19:00 and 18:00 in the 5K, as well as sub-23:00 for 6K. I've also coached men who have run under 15:30 for 5K, 25:30 for 8K, and 32:40 for 10K. Two sayings that I live by in this profession are, "train smarter, not harder," and "consistency = success". Running is a lifestyle. Living healthy and active is a lifestyle. If you want to achieve your goals, you must be "all in" when it comes to doing what is necessary to reach them.
