I coached middle school cross country and track for 2 years at Seattle Country Day School in Seattle, Washington. I had 1-on-1 coaching experience over the summer after first starting at SCDS with one athlete, who went on to have their best cross country season while at SCDS following my mentoring. I also served as youth head coach and assistant coach for cross country in Vancouver, Washington and in Northwest Portland, Oregon respectively in Fall 2020.
Grew up in Sammamish, Washington and attended Eastside Catholic High School. Didn’t start running until 8th grade but played everything from basketball, baseball, soccer, and tennis before that. Didn’t start labeling myself as a runner until after I broke my finger at basketball tryouts sophomore year and started running year-round as a result to stay in shape and train for track. Went on to compete collegiately at Seattle Pacific University and Multnomah University. Aside from running, I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities like hiking and skiing and often volunteer at trail work parties to pursue my passion for the environment. You may still often find me at the tennis court on a nice day or in the gym playing a game of pickup basketball. There’s nothing more soothing to me than cooking myself a nice meal. I also am probably the biggest anime nerd you’ve ever met.
My collegiate coach Corey Mehl has been a major personal influence. After battling a slough of injuries in my undergrad collegiate career, I went to a new school and new system in which I bought into the training and was able to return to a level that I thought I could only dream to return to. I incorporate parts of that program into my coaching while also borrowing more mainstream, popularized training ideas like the aerobic emphasis from Lydiard and the multi-pace and critical velocity training of both Coe and Tinman. My coaching offers the whole package and whether out on the road or in the gym, you’ll get the training stimulus you need in order to grow and develop.
Ran on varsity all four years of high school in both cross country and track, scoring as the 1,2, or 3 runner each race of high school cross country. At Seattle Pacific, where I obtained my bachelor’s degree, competed at the conference championships in cross country four times and regional championships two times. Also competed at the indoor and outdoor track conference championships two times each. Only had track eligibility at Multnomah but brought the program to new heights as I was the school’s first ever qualifier for NAIA Nationals in any sport, qualifying for the marathon at Outdoor Nationals in both of my years on the team. Graduated with my master’s degree April 2019 and left with school records indoors at 5k and in anchoring the distance medley relay as well as outdoors in both the 10k and half marathon.

A transparent and consistent coach review system is really valuable to us. The main goal of reviews
is to make sure a coach is fulfilling their obligations, is available for their runner, is communicating well and being responsive, is demonstrating knowledge, and is simply providing a great experience. We reach out to runners for a review 2 months after they’ve been with a coach, which is ample time for a runner to know if their coach is fulfilling these obligations.
