Biography

I began running casually as a means to complete a sprint distance triathlon, but quickly realized that this leg of the race was, by far, my favorite. Since becoming dedicated to this sport 13 years ago, I have raced every distance from 5K- 100K, both in the United States and in many other countries in Europe and the Caribbean. I coach because I believe that there is an educational aspect to running that helps newcomers and veterans really “find their stride” and enjoy running, and also because running can be an amazing, unique way to explore Europe, meet new people, and experience places in an authentic, memorable way.

Philosophy

Running is a sport that can be enjoyed by anyone, and access to quality coaching and education about the sport of running should also be accessible to runners of all skill levels and those with any running related goal. I have had the privilege to coach runners through their first continuous mile, as well as their first marathon. Whether your goal is to run your first 5K, create a long-term, sustainable running habit, qualify for the Boston Marathon, or return to the sport after a layoff, quality coaching will help you achieve these goals.
