About Me

I have been coaching athletes for the last 15years. As an athlete I have played most team sports and raced as an age group triathlete and cyclist since 1996.  Some great memories include IRONMAN Canada and Olympic Distance Nationals in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, and most recently racing bikes in Arizona. Over the years I have also been a race director and multiport club president. At home, I have two young children whom I spend most of my free time with playing sports, hiking and baking various treats.


As a full service coach I believe that your success comes in large part to clear and open communication. Because of this I provide an active feedback loop that includes workout analysis, feedback on daily files, and encouragement to the athlete to share and communicate openly.  My coaching experience includes cyclists, triathletes (Sprint to IRONMAN), and runners of all distance from 5km to Marathon. I am available for private camps, and coach at various CTS Camps.


As a CTS Coach, I’m an expert in personal coaching, private camps,  LT/VO2 Testing, Bike Fit, as well as race day support. I also consult on pre and post- race nutrition, race day nutrition, and weight loss management. I am empathetic but not sympathetic and believe in ownership of the situation.
