Whether the goal is road, trail or ultra-running, my strengths lie in identifying an event’s metabolic, musculoskeletal, & psychological demands, understanding my athlete’s unique life demands and performance gaps, then drafting a plan to achieve the goal as well as provide balance with the rest of their lives. We then communicate, adjust, and adapt so the athlete may pursue their biggest ambitions.
Athletics has been a lifelong passion for me. Through high school in Arizona, I trained as a volleyball, basketball, and track/field athlete. I competed for the Brigham Young University Track and Field team as a sprinter/hurdler. My interest in Human Performance science led me to pursue a B.S. in Fitness and Wellness and then an M.S in Exercise Physiology.
When my collegiate career ended I discovered endurance sports as a way to fill the competitive void. I eventually found ultrarunning as the perfect activity to blend my love of fitness with my love of adventure. I have experienced firsthand the life-changing influence that human-powered movement, healthy habits, community, and inspiration found within this sport can have. Helping others to find performance longevity and sustainable habits in their sport of choice keeps me motivated to approach my career from the perspective of a student and scientist as well as a coach. I have in-depth experience across a variety of disciplines including personal training, collegiate strength and conditioning, track & field, cross-country and ultrarunning coaching.
When I am not coaching or mountain running I enjoy spending time with my hubby and chasing our three kids around on bikes or skis.
