Mt Zion, IL , United States
I am a Certified IRONMAN Coach new to coaching formally, but have been in the sport of endurance running and triathlon and helping people for several years. I am also a Physical Therapist in outpatient Orthopedic setting for nearly 20 years. I enjoy helping people learn how to move their bodies and reach their goals.
I am a triathlete, loving the transition over to coaching fellow triathletes. I am a Physical Therapist and single mom to my amazing daughter. I started racing in 2012 with a half marathon and decided a next challenge for myself would be a triathlon. I found a local one 6 weeks after my half marathon, bought a bike and learned to swim. I had 2 goals: to finish and to not finish last! Mission accomplished, and I actually met my first tri coach through that event and went on to train with him for 4 years. In that time, I was able to improve and was invited to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Port Elizabeth, South Africa through a Women For Tri and All World Athlete spot. Since then, I have rehabbed myself through some chronic pain issues and am working on returning to racing myself, as well as taking on some athletes to help as a coach.
