I have coached athletes of all levels since 2016 in triathlon and running from beginners to competitive age-groupers, Clydesdale athletes, and a Kona qualifier. My education background is in teaching, so coaching is what I love to do. There is no better feeling than seeing an athlete achieve their goals.
I am a certified USAT, level 1 coach, a USMS coach, and an RRCA coach. I have coached beginner athletes to competitive athletes. In addition, I volunteer as a Trek Women’s Advocate to get more women on bikes.
I have competed in the sport of triathlon since 2014, and I have done every distance from the sprint to the Ironman. I came to triathlon through running and my love of cross-training in the pool and on the bike. Having participated in sports all my life with high school and college soccer and competitive swimming in high school, triathlon is a natural fit. I love coaching athletes and seeing what they accomplish.
I’m originally from Cleveland, OH, and I’ve lived all over the country and in Japan while teaching English during the time my my husband served in the Navy. I have a knack for starting over from nothing after moving nine times in twenty years. I am organized and can pack my suitcase or triathlon bag in minutes. Thankfully, Philadelphia is home now since 2016.
Together, we are strong. No one does anything alone, and as a coach, I’m here to guide you through the process of training for your triathlon, support you with one-on-one sessions, in person or virtually, and keep communication open. I take an athlete-centered approach to coaching as we work together to balance training with family and work obligations.
