As a certified coach and former professional triathlete, I offer custom, individualized training plans that place an emphasis on training-life balance and optimum health. I've guided athletes to first time Ironman finishes, PR's, and qualification for 70.3 World Championships, as well as Ironman 70.3 Age Group wins and course records. I also specialize in swim technique and have coached swimmers to Age Group and Masters South Carolina State Championships.
My road to becoming a coach began with involvement in sports from an early age. I grew up swimming, running, playing soccer, and riding my bike everywhere. I ran NCAA Div. 1 Track and Cross Country for Wofford College, and began participating in triathlons in 1998. I was instantly hooked, and went on to compete at three Age Group World Championships before turning pro in 2004. I was fortunate to have some amazing experiences, including training at the US Olympic Training Center as part of the US Olympic Recruitment Program, racing in the German Triathlon Bundesliga, and training with Dave Scott in Boulder.
I retired from racing professionally in 2009, became a USA Triathlon certified coach, and started my own coaching business in 2010. Since then I have had the opportunity to work with athletes ranging from beginners to Age Group World Champions and to help them reach their goals. Some achievements for Ironworks Multisport athletes include finishes at Ironman Florida, Ironman South Africa, Ironman UK, Ironman Western Australia, Ironman Maryland, Ironman Lake Placid, Ironman Louisville, Ironman Chattanooga, and Challenge Roth, as well as many, many finishes at sprint, Olympic, and 70.3 races! I particularly enjoy guiding athletes to first time finishes in long distance races. Helping someone exceed their limits is what coaching is all about!
