As an athlete, I've been competing for over twenty years at a very high level, starting with my time as a Division I collegiate cross country and track runner, and eventually a team captain. I went on to train for many marathons and qualified to run in the Boston Marathon in 2004. It was a great experience and I finished with a time of 3 hours 15 minutes. After Boston, I knew it was time for a new challenge and that is how I found triathlon.
I am now a professional triathlete, have won two amateur Ironman titles, placed 2nd at Ironman Lake Placid and my personal best is 9:23 with a 3:03 IM marathon. I've coached over 150 athletes to personal bests and helped hundreds of athletes with their sports nutrition as a registered sports dietitian (CSSD, RD).
As a coach, I have an excellent knowledge base to offer my athletes and real-life racing experience from beginner to professional. I have coached athletes from all levels of experience and ages of 16 to 65.
In addition to my passion for triathlon, my professional career as a Registered Dietitian / Licensed Nutritionist provides me with unique opportunities to tie in nutrition with the athletic realm.
