Setting clear, measurable, and realistic goals is the foundation of successful training. I work collaboratively with athletes to establish short-term and long-term objectives, providing a roadmap for their athletic journey.

Adaptability and Continuous Learning:
The world of sports is dynamic, and I am committed to adapting my coaching methods to evolving circumstances. I continuously seek opportunities for professional development to enhance my coaching skills and knowledge.


Over the years, I’ve accomplished numerous personal milestones in my running journey by leveraging standardized training plans. These plans served as the bedrock of my training, and I adapted them to suit the demands of my schedule, balancing family and work commitments. The unwavering support from friends and family played a crucial role in keeping me on track and accountable.

As an athlete, I deeply understand the significance of not only having a well-structured plan and a strong support system but also prioritizing nutrition and hydration both during training and on race day. Recognizing the benefits of integrating strength training into my running regimen has also been valuable lesson.

In my role as a coach, I am dedicated to providing you with a comprehensive training plan, unwavering support, and guidance to help you realize your goals. I commit to maintaining consistent communication to address any necessary adjustments and to offer encouragement throughout your training journey.


I’m a registered nurse, wife, and mother. I’ve participated in a variety of races, spanning both road and trail environments. Our family thrives on outdoor activities, and I’ve tackled everything from 5k to 50k races. Recognizing the intricacies and the importance of adaptability in managing children’s schedules, running, and juggling a full-time job, I believe in prioritizing self-care to ensure we can be at our best for others.

While utilizing standardized running programs, I’ve successfully navigated the complexities of aligning these plans with my unique lifestyle and schedule. Despite making necessary adjustments, I’ve consistently met and exceeded my personal running goals.


Training must have the flexibility to meet the chaos in everyday life. I have used different templated programs that have helped me achieve my goals for the upcoming race. I have made changes and adaptations to the training programs allowing for flexibility to a busy family and professional life. I also have recently tuned into the Des Linden and Kara Goucher, professional runners that have a great attitude towards running and life.


I’ve experienced both exceptional and challenging races throughout my running journey. Overcoming numerous obstacles in my running “career,” I’ve managed to persevere, cross the finish line, and maintain a genuine passion for the sport. As previously mentioned, I’ve tackled everything from 5ks to 50Ks, on both trails and roads. Each race, distance, and terrain bring a unique sense of accomplishment that I genuinely cherish.
