Train with me

Passionate About Inspiring Others To Become Their Best Self.

Why Do I Coach?

I have a passion for teaching, and supporting people to become their "best self". That is my life motto and reflects in my day to day lifestyle. I've been running since, well, I can't remember when.

 

I ran more competitively for a junior olympics team called Striders when I was an adolescent, and then joined the cross country and track team at Watauga High School. My senior year I placed 2nd in the 2 mile, division 4A in the State of NC. I had the BEST High School Coach, Leigh Wallace, who taught me how to believe in myself and learn to trust the process in order to be my best self. In college, I found success early (MVP FR/SO year in Cross Country), but like many college athletes I was burned out and unmotivated to compete after a couple years. 

 

Skip 8 years later. I've graduated. I'm teaching math in Lake Tahoe. In those 8 years I have stayed true to my upbringing... RUNNING HILLS. I routinely ran up a peak everyday for several years, and intermittently jumped in to triathlons, road my road bike, mountain biked, skied, swam in freshwater lakes and fell more and more in love with the mountain endurance lifestyle. 

 

In 2015 I jumped into my first trail ultra, Way Too Cool 50k, and found myself grounded by the trail running community. I had thought this race would be a bucket list check off, but I'm here now in 2020 and have traveled the world as a competitive elite trail runner for Hoka ONE ONE, and have met the kindest "tribe" of humans who share in the same passion.

 

And now... I want to give back to you. I'd be most honored and overjoyed to support you in immersing yourself in trail running training, racing and finding the joy of being your best self in this beautiful life journey.
