I grew up running in the track/ road running world and have spent the last few years focused on sub-ultra and ultra trail races. So I am ready to help you achieve your running goals for any distance and on any surface.

The past three years (with numerous injuries and illnesses) have afforded me the opportunity to become a more well-rounded coach, with opportunities to learn more about nutrition, weight lifting, and PT.

In addition, I offer all of my athletes an open invitation to join me in Jackson, WY for runs, rides, or ski laps!


Communication is the first component of my coaching philosophy. We can chat as much or as little as you’d like; whatever that amount is, I want to make sure that I am working to help you achieve your goals. I am open to feedback and as we learn to work together, we can adjust any components to find the perfect balance.

The physical philosophy components focus on movement and recovery. Yes, running is key to becoming a better runner. But I also focus on adding other forms of movement to my athlete’s schedules, including cross-training, weight lifting, stretching, core, and evening strolls.

Recovery is the other key component, which includes getting adequate sleep, taking unscheduled rest days when needed, and working closely with athletes to balance adaptation without overdoing it.


I come from a diverse teaching and coaching background. Outside of running, I’ve coached downhill and cross-country skiing and whitewater kayaking; I’ve taught wilderness medicine courses, outdoor education, and swift water rescue; and I’ve guided single-day river excursions through multi-week expeditions.

As I continue to step away from these other roles to focus on run coaching full-time, I draw on these other experiences to be the best coach I can be. From summer youth track coaching to helping an athlete finish their first ultra, I want to work with you to help you with your running goals, whatever they may be.


I grew up in Lodi, CA, the town where Credence Clearwater Revival got stuck! I am a 6th generation farmer and 4th generation runner who now calls Jackson, WY home. I ran my first race in a baby jogger at a few months old and have continued to run faster and farther ever since.

My early competitive running years were focused on track and road races. I ran through high school and part of college, at Bowdoin College in Maine. For a time I also focused on triathlons, specializing in Olympic distances and completing one Half Iron distance. Now I focus on sub-ultra and ultra trail races, though still enjoy fast track workouts, the occasional road race, and multisport events from time to time.

I don’t let running compromise my other outdoor interests, including cycling, skiing, and whitewater kayaking. My dog, Pepper, joins me on all these adventures, as time with her is always a priority. After playing outside, I focus much of my energy on eating plant-based, local foods.

The other important aspect of my life is medicine. I am a volunteer firefighter/ EMT and teach wilderness medicine courses.


My dad was instrumental in my running origins, and he too continues to run longer races every year! As a teen, I read Dean Karnazes’ “Ultramarathon Man” and knew my future running would focus on longer trail races.


I don’t limit my race distances; I am excited to continue to train for fast road and track efforts as well as working towards 200+ mile races. Some notable racing moments include breaking 5 minutes in the mile my senior year of high school, finishing my first ultramarathon, the Deadhorse 50 Miler, and signing up for races with my parents.
