USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach

image I spent the 1st 18 year of my life as a fish….culminating at LSU on a swimming scholarship and competing at NCAA's in distance freestyle. I soon migrated to the land and learned to run….a fish out of water but I loved the "runners high" After struggling with injury I discovered cycling and was in love. Putting the 3 together was the next step and I did my 1st Sprint Triathlon at 40 and was hooked. Within a year I was doing 70.3's and then Ironman. I have raced in Kona at the Ironman World Championships 3 times and have become obsessed with triathlon.

As a USAT Level I Coach I am able to make my passion my work…..I am committed to taking athletes through their journey of their 1st triathlon or laying out a plan to step up in distance or quality for a World Championship. I coach each athlete personally and write a customized training plan that works in your life to achieve your goals. As a mother of 2 kids, I understand there is more to life than swim.bike.run – I find balance in putting my family first yet still training at a high level. It can be done and can be done well, allow me to guide your journey.

As a USA Swim Coach I offer private swim sessions in the pool or open water. Swimming is technique based and with a series of lessons you can get faster and stronger without going longer and harder.

So let's try a Triathlon, let's get faster, let's get stronger or let's just have fun!!
