CTS Premier Coach – Specializes In Cycling Coaching
“I believe a successful athlete is one who is able to commit to their sport, while striking a balance with other key aspects of life: family, work and friends. The ability to manage those demands makes one a better athlete and a better person. As a coach, helping someone achieve that balance is a top priority for me.”
My passion for performance and coaching evolved from a background in competitive sports. I grew up playing soccer and played while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Villanova University.
Building on that experience, I completed a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology at Northern Arizona University. The combined experience of those degrees lead me to a position at USA Cycling, where I served as the resident coach for the Junior National Team.
In the pursuit of coaching excellence, I joined CTS in 2000. I’ve had the opportunity to serve as a National Team coach for the US Para-cycling team, including working as a coach at the 2004, 2008, 2016, and 2020 Paralympic Games. Athletes I’ve worked with have honored me with USOPC Order of Ikkos medals six times.
