Assistant Coach, USAT Level I Certified
As a coach, I empower people to dream big, beat yesterday and lap their former selves many times over. My specialties include adult learn-to-swim (ALTS), running, swimming and cheering like mad in a tutu. I have two rules, in racing, training and life:
#1 Be safe; #2 Have fun.
A mantra came to me while I struggled to calm myself during the swim at my first Olympic tri and I use it to this day: Breathe, Believe, Achieve. READ MORE about my story and my goals as a coach!

Assistant Coach, Registered Dietitian and Certified Sports Specialist Dietitian
As a coach and sports dietitian, I view my role as one to guide you thru confusion, support you through discouragement; inspire good health, well-being, and life balance; help you find your strength when you want to give up; and celebrate alongside you when you achieve what you only dreamed possible. In terms of credentials, I’m a 3-time Ironman finisher (my favorite distance is 70.3 though!), I’m a Registered Dietitian and Certified Sports Specialist Dietitian, and I am pursuing USAC Level 3 and USAT Level 1 certifications in 2018. While I believe in personal challenge, above all, this sport should be fun. If it’s no longer fun, it’s my role to help you train to a different tune.
