Coach Bio:

I have been an endurance athlete for almost half my life. Between running and cycling, I have nearly 15 years of experience training for endurance sports. I started within the sport of running, competing throughout high school, and a few years racing club collegiate at Indiana University. From there, I got onto a bike and have been a dedicated cyclist ever since, with a focus on road racing and criteriums. I graduated from Indiana University with a major in Exercise Science, minor in coaching and psychology.

When I had the chance to come work as an endurance sports coach for CTS back in 2017, I jumped at the opportunity. Since that time, I have had the chance to work with dozens of athletes across all major endurance sports disciplines including cycling, running, and triathlon. I have coached athletes within these disciplines for a wide variety of events like road races, gravel races, gran fondos, marathons, and Ironmans. I believe my versatility as a coach to be one of my strongest attributes, in addition to my communication skills. I believe that when the athlete is able to understand why they are doing something a certain way and the mechanisms behind it; they grow into a more successful and complete athlete. I take pride in being able to effectively communicate training strategies and philosophy to my athletes with the detail and clarity they deserve.
