FAIRBANKS, AK , United States
I am but tending to a spark that ignites a fire within you.
Challenge leads to growth and sport is a great way to test growth. I have been in the coaching field for the last seven years. I’ve coached under many different teams and worked individually with different level athletes, from beginner to master. Every athlete I interact with has helped me grow to become a better coach. The challenges they bring are an opportunity for me to learn and adapt, to create the best plan for their future.
I actively train for running and Nordic skiing which allows me to test my newest coaching practices on myself before suggesting them to my athletes. By applying my coaching knowledge to my own training, I back my coaching with wisdom.
Success comes when athletes can be themselves and feel supported by their coach. I believe confidence grows in an environment where thoughts and ideas are welcome and inspiration is strongest when it sparks from within. I focus to guide athletes to find the correct preparation methods for themselves to make them the best athlete they can be on race day.
