Coach Bio

To any improvement-minded trail runner, I work to build running confidence and competence through an individualized, interactive training program thoughtfully paired with each client. My goal is to help athletes develop a sustainable relationship with running that survives a lifetime, and still allows for chasing performance goals along the way.

I've coached runners for 13+ years at a variety of levels: from beginning adults, to high school state champions, to elite trail and ultra runners. For all my athletes I aim to build training programs around three pillars:

  1. An Improvement mindset- I meet you where you are, yet assume you want to improve. I push myself as a coach to increase my knowledge of training science to help you reach your best.
  2. Sensible progression - I push you just enough to improve while minimizing the risk of injury and burnout to keep you running longer.
  3. Inclusive enthusiasm - whatever your goal is, I make it mine too.

From my high school days running the trails of Flagstaff, to collegiate running, and beyond, I've been fortunate to have wonderful, supportive coaches. It is my responsibility to give back to the running community by providing that same high level support that I received over the years.

I'm a USATF certified coach, an NASM CPT and CNC, and have extensive knowledge of trail and mountain running/racing in the American West. I am the elite athlete coordinator at the Rut Mountain Runs and also offer guided trail running trips.
