Although I dabbled in various sports and activities when I was younger, my true road to fitness and racing began when I was in grad school. I felt unhealthy and unsatisfied with my energy and happiness levels. I began with picking up recreational running and trail biking, and learning more about how to eat more healthfully. On a whim, I signed up for a triathlon to challenge and motivate myself. I didn't know much about structured training, and didn't know how to swim, but after training for and racing my first triathlon I was hooked! Before discovering this sport, I had never found something that excited me so much or gave me such drive and motivation to excel.
After a few years of racing and learning as much as I could about the sport and coaching, I became a certified USA Triathlon coach in 2013. Since then I have added USA Cycling and Road Runners Club of America certification to help me better serve the multisport and single sport athletes I work with.
I take a highly personalized approach when working with my athletes. While I give each athlete the same high level of attention, no two plans look the same and no coaching relationship is exactly the same. I focus on getting to know the individual athlete, their needs, strengths, limiters and goals, and customize my coaching and the training plan to address those factors. In this way, I help each athlete address exactly what they need to address in order to meet their highest athletic potential.
When I'm not coaching, you'll often see me training myself, and enjoying the outdoors around the Seacoast of New Hampshire with my husband, daughters and/or dog.
