How long have you been coaching?

3 years

What motivated you to begin coaching?

In the simplest terms, I wanted to be able to help athletes navigate their lives and training to achieve their goals. I am passionate about sport and knowledge. Being able to share that knowledge as well as continuing to develop and learn new ideas and methods has been and will remain my motivation for coaching.

Types of athletes or race distances you prefer to coach?

I coach all types of athletes from those looking to enter their first sprint triathlons or 5k’s to Ironman athletes that have spent years in the sport. I just ask for an open mind, a willingness to learn, and a desire to commit to the journey.

What is your coaching philosophy?

As a scientist I am always seeking to better understand processes. I ask a lot of ‘why, how, to what extent?’ I gather and integrate data in order to support or refute hypotheses. I apply this same approach to coaching. I do not believe that there is a single method or program for every athlete. I apply knowledge that I have gained over the years through research and experience and I work closely with athletes to develop a training plan that works for them. I believe that integrating all aspects of an athlete’s life (work, family, community, etc.) is essential for success.

Coaching certifications and experience

USAT Level 1, TrainingPeaks University level 1 and 2

How did you get into the sport?

I was a runner looking to qualify for Boston and transition to ultra events. My coach at the time was an accomplished Ironman athlete who was primarily coaching other Ironman focused athletes. It seemed like a natural fit for me given my propensity and love for going long. I registered for my first Ironman having never done a triathlon. My coach insisted I do a 70.3 as prep, which went just fine. But it was the Ironman distance that had my heart from the beginning.

Favorite Distance to Race?

Ironman

Race history, personal achievements, and PRs

8 x Ironman finisher, PR of 10:31. Numerous 70.3s, marathons (3 x BQ, PR of 3:24), 1/2 marathons, local trail races (1 x 50 miler).

Although I am well-versed in data analysis, research, and am constantly seeking to further my knowledge and understanding of performance and health, I firmly believe in simplicity. It is increasingly prevalent in today’s world that we get lost in the technology, gadgets, and the numbers. Finding the joy, peace, and love of movement (training and racing) is and will always remain the greatest factor in both longevity and success in sport.
