I take a holistic approach to coaching, incorporating functional mobility, plyometrics, physiology, nutrition, and periodization. I can evaluate your stride, form, or footstrike via video or in person. I’m adept in injury prevention and recovery as well as building a strong foundation from which to peak.

With experience as a professional coach, I can help you reach your individual goals: run your first race, a new personal record, a BQ, or simply enjoy running where it was once a slog. Wherever you are in your running journey, I will meet you there and help you reach your goals.

I have expertise on the track, road, and trails, but my first priority is to keep my runners injury-free so they can find joy in running for the rest of their lives.


I believe in running as a medium towards health and a life fully lived. My training plans are challenging, but humane. My coaching style is direct, personal, high touch, and supremely casual. I believe in living to run another day.

Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds of athletes from beginner to sub-elite. I supplement my runner’s efforts with efficient, battle-tested training plans. Most importantly, I am your sounding board, source of support, and therapist – as needed :).

My approach is focused on consistency and sustainability. “Sweat on the brow” is the surest sign of a prepared racer. I believe a life well run is a life well lived.


I cut my coaching teeth volunteering for the Si View Track Club and have since transitioned to paid personal and team coaching for the Snoqualmie Valley School District and USATF Member BEAR Club. I love coaching beginning/intermediate runners of all ages who are looking to compete AND cultivate a healthy, full life through running.

My athletes have PR’d in distances from 400m to the marathon, but more proudly they do so with a smile.


I grew up in Indiana, but my career in medtech has taken me through New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Paris, and now Seattle. I’ve been a salesperson, a marketer, a product manager and a lean operations consultant. Underpinning this journey is the unwavering belief that we all need support, encouragement and ongoing education. I’m a coach and I’m here for you.


I’ve been fortunate to work for and with some stellar coaches. James Goodhue and Robert Stenftenagel shaped my philosophy and engendered a strong belief in direct, consistent affirmation. Matthew Degnan has served as an invaluable guide as I’ve ventured into professional coaching.


I ran varsity track and cross country for Jasper High School before rowing crew for the University of Notre Dame. I’ve since run distances from 5k to Marathon on roads and trails around the world. I’m currently focused on improving my half marathon PR while building a solid plyometric / functional mobility base.
