Athletics and movement have always been a pivotal aspect of life for me, it is the basis for my profession as a coach. Growing up near Grand Teton National park taught me a healthy respect and love for the outdoors and I combined it with a multitude of sports, from skiing to motorsports. College offered the opportunity for me to instruct snowboard and ski lessons and to race road and mountain bikes. Racing bikes took me to the national and international stage almost immediately; my learning curve was sharp and I loved every moment! Over the past decade trail running and racing has reinvigorated my love of endurance sports. It is incredibly challenging, scary and simple all at once. A personal training certification (NASM) rounds out my ability to support runners, cyclists, and triathletes in the gym when necessary and appropriate. I strive for exceptional athletic performance and life-balance for myself and insist on creating the same standard for every athlete I coach. I have been with Carmichael Training Systems since 2003, it is a tremendous privilege and opportunity to be a part of the best coaching firm in the business!
