Coach Bio

My mission is to encourage multi-sport athletes of all abilities and ages to become more active in triathlon, in a fun, supportive and inclusive environment. My speciality is beginners working towards their first sprint triathlon through Ironman distance. I also enjoy working with parents and kids. As a coach, I care more about the athlete being a well-rounded individual more than I care about them being on the podium. Your family, job, and other hobbies matter to me.
