A marathon lover turned triathlete, I love long distance races. I resigned from my corporate job as a chemist for 16 years to coach and personal train full time. I love working with the beginner who is eager to learn as well as the advanced athlete who wants to be challenged.

I grew up playing organized sports in school but dreaded the mile test in gym class like no one else. I never considered myself a “runner." That is until a friend convinced me to run a half marathon and I discovered my love of long distance running. As I added mileage each week, I became amazed by what the body could accomplish. That left me wanting more, and wanting to go longer.

I quickly transitioned to the marathon distance, which to this day, is my favorite. After spending a few years running road races from 5ks to a 50 miler, I decided to dabble in the sport of triathlon after an injury left me only able to swim for a while. After landing on the podium at my first sprint tri, the fire was lit to see what else I could accomplish. The following year I completed my first Ironman distance.

I have a BS in chemistry and am a certified Personal Trainer through ACE, a USAT Level 1 coach, RRCA run coach and a Training Peaks Level 2 coach.

I absolutely love a challenge and believe training and racing should be fun! I recognize that a training schedule is not a one size fits all and work to customize a plan for my athletes individual goals, making sure to include activities which the athlete enjoys.

I am passionate not only about my own goals, but my athletes' goals as well, and I believe achieving those goals can and should be enjoyable.

I am an animal lover who enjoys spending time with my husband and being outdoors.
