I love pack riding. Criteriums & track racing are my athletic specialty. Humans are my coaching specialty. I am skilled at helping an athlete sleuth to get the most from their schedule, and their body as they go after their goals. Another specialty is that I can help a team of individuals refine their skillset enough to pull off effective racing strategies together in races. I am a 3 x UCI Master's Track Worlds Silver Medalist (2K IP in 2015, 2K IP and Points Race 2016, 45-49 age group).
I am a USA Cycling Certified Level 1 Coach. I have been coaching cycling since 2005, and coaching athletics since 1991, from rowing to swimming and currently road cycling. I am a Certified Professional CTI Co-Active Coach (www.coactive.com). Co-Active Coaching is a wonderful tool to guide an athlete through a period of time that offers a particular challenge, or they just want to reach a goal more sufficiently with support and accountability. I am certified in a method of core and nervous system training called Revolution In Motion that addresses the entire system of small muscles in the body to foster stability and enhanced proprioception (www.revinmo.com). I have a BA in Psychology, a BS in Kinesiology, and a double teaching certificate in Physical Education and Adapted Physical Education. I helped the USA Cycling Beginning Racer Program come to fruition. I Co-Directed the Northern California Early Bird Racing series from 2009-2017 with an amazing team of coaches. I work with all kinds of athletes in all realms. I get the most out of helping athletes reach for and refine strengths that they didn't even know they had. I live, teach, train, and coach based in Northern California, and have clients all over the world. If you are interested in coaching of any kind (cycling, or Co-Active Athletic Coaching) I offer free sample coaching sessions, and can be reached at: 707-318-8914. I look forward to hearing about your goals. Let's do this! ~Love, Laurel

The main thing I ask from a potential client or group of clients is that they be willing to learn and grow as a person alongside of being an athlete.
