Truckee, CA , United States
I have been a professional endurance coach for over 15 years, working with athletes of all abilities and helping them to improve and work toward their goals. I offer personalized coaching for any level of athlete and look forward to helping them make progress towards their goals!
I grew up in Oakland, California, and developed a love for the outdoors through weekend outings, especially skiing in the winter. After catching the racing bug in high school, I attended Bates College where I was a member of the cross-country ski team there for four years. There, my coach was a great mentor for me both personally and athletically. After graduating college, I began coaching at the junior level (mostly high school age). Since then, I've coached all variety of cross-country skiers from Olympians down to youth skiers on a pair of cross-country skis for the first time. I've also been fortunate enough to work with runners and mountain bikers in pursuit of their goals.
Professionally, I've continued to seek out development opportunities and am a US Ski and Snowboard Level 200 certified cross-country ski coach and have worked extensively with physiologists, strength coaches, and data analysts to develop my approach to training.
Above all, I believe that everyone can improve. I will work with you as a person first, and an athlete second. I want to meet you where you are at in your athletic or fitness journey and help take the next steps. I'm excited to get to know you whether your goal is completing a 30 km ski for fun or the Olympic podium.
