Beginner and Intermediate running short distances like the 5K through long distances up to the marathon, running through and post pregnancy running, post injury running, strength training and sports nutrition


Every runner is different: different goals, different motivation, different lives, different “why”, different careers, different goals.

I meet the runner where they’re at and we work towards where they want to be.


I have coached for about 5 years. I have coached individual adults


I ran track when I was in high school and I was a sprinter. I wanted to run the shortest distance I possibly could at that time. I find it ironic that many years later, I LOVE running long distances. I have been running as an adult and long distances for 13 years. I took some time off when I had my two children who are now 5 & 7 years old. I am a mom first but I always make time to run and my kiddos have even joined me in the stroller for 5K’s and those have been some of the most fun for me. I am a school social worker and an adrenaline junkie. Right now, running and working out does that for me but in my younger years, skydiving was my hobby. I would say running is much safer. I love the beach, being active/ sports, and animals.


Coaching an athlete is more than just writing a plan for someone to follow. It’s a relationship, I truly believe that is the most important thing. Anyone can write down how much or how long you should run for but as I mentioned before, everyone is not the same and what works for one may not work for another. Trainer smarter, not harder. Running the most miles doesn’t make you the best runner, again, one size does not fit all. Being smart and training as much as your body will allow without injury is important which includes cross training and strength training.


I have run about 30 half marathons to date with the Celebration Half Marathon being my most memorable for a few reasons, first being that it’s my half marathon PR. This race in in Celebration, FL which is right outside of Disney World and about 45 minutes from where I live. The course is pretty and it’s flat. It really is. So many races advertise as being flat but in my Florida girl experience, they are not. Granted we don’t see many hills here so maybe it’s me. I have run it a few different years. I’ve run it in decent running shape, not so great running shape, and in my best so far running shape which makes it pretty cool. January 2022, the weather was a crisp, perfect ( in my opinion) 38 ish degrees and it just felt relatively easy to entire way. I really got to enjoy the race after really putting in the work during training. Out of the 6 marathons I ran, I would say two stood out most. Albany, GA was the first time I was really trying for a BQ. It was hotter than average temps (BOO) and my hamstring started to hurt towards the end so I missed my BQ by 5 minutes. I was determined after that to come back stronger and run somewhere colder! Fast forward to April 2023, Eugene, OR. That hamstring problem lingered and is what got me BUT it was one of the most amazing running experiences ever. Clearly I prefer to run the longer distance but I do enjoy the 5k, 10k, 15k from time to time and they feel so short after running the other races.
