Coach Bio:

I have been running on and off for most of my life. While going through a rough patch in my life, I found sanctuary on the trails near Denver and began taking running more seriously.

I graduated from Western Colorado University with a degree in Exercise Science and Biology. While at Western I was fortunate enough to be a part of the school’s collegiate trail running team, where I had the time of my life exploring new trails, running big mountains, and conquering my longest races. Besides trail running I also love hiking 14ers, eating vegan food, and taking my dog to the lake.
