Team W Coaching

From children to adults, helping people achieve health and wellness goals while embracing their lifestyle journey is my passion. I love to observe the impact that owning your health and wellness has on all aspects of your life. I have helped children reached the targeted finish in running and triathlon, and helped adults reach the finish of their first 5K, 10K, 1/2 Marathon, Marathon, Triathlon and more. The support extends beyond the finish line to focus on work-life balance, home-life balance and the ability to see the impact on your day to day performance. I incorporate a “one day…one step” mentality and follow the same philosophy in my daily life.

I was a goalkeeper and played competitive soccer through high school and college including a tour on the U17 Region 1 Olympic Development Team. I am a 5K, 10K, 15K, Half Marathon and Marathon finisher. In Triathlon, I have raced at the Sprint, Olympic, 70.3 & 140.6 distances. I have also completed the Spartan Sprint and Super Distances.

My career, after graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Business, started in Real Estate. I spent many years in the Title Insurance Industry, operating a Transaction Management Company and as a Residential Broker. As my life transitioned back to my athletic passions, my career followed suit and my emphasis returned to coaching at both the career and athletic level.
