USA Triathlon Level I Certified Coach
USA Swimming Certified Coach
It is my belief that goals are obtainable with support, guidance, vulnerability & dedication. I have/had some amazing Coaches in my life that have impacted my life in and outside of competing.
My goal is to help you reach your goals no matter what obstacles pop up, such as vacation, work conference, bad weather, sick etc. thru trust and communication.
I am Active Duty Military, Coast Guard Officer, & currently reside in Virginia Beach, Virginia with my puppy Sploot.
I was raised & groomed into a competitive swimmer; swam year round, for my Middle & High Schools, for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (D3) & now compete as an adult (US Masters and USA Swimming). I have over 22 years of competitive swimming experience across Short Course Yards & Meters, Long Course Meters & Open Water Swimming.
I started weightlifting in 2017 & fell in love with the sport. At first I did only Powerlifting; however, in Summer of 2020 I picked up Olympic Lifting. I currently train as a Super Total Lifter (Squat + Bench + Deadlift + Snatch + Clean & Jerk). I am currently in the process of obtaining my Level 1 Olympic Weightlifting Coaching Certification with a Qualification Date of May 22nd.
I have been a swim coach & instructor since 2010; coaching ages 5 years old to 80 years old across four teams (due to moving with the Military).
From '20-'21, I oversaw the health, fitness & wellness of 3,000 Active Duty Members at my unit. I managed & executed several fitness challenges & wrote training plans for members.
