I enjoy connecting with runners of all abilities, celebrating their victories, and helping them achieve their best through coaching + workshops. I am a certified RRCA coach + Chi Running Instructor in the state of Oklahoma but I work with athletes all around the world! It is my goal to not only help brand new runners finish their first 5k, but for veteran athletes to reach their goals, while remaining strong + healthy.
Train smarter, not harder.
I’m a runner and certified RRCA run coach in Oklahoma. After enduring several surgeries, 2 rounds of menopause, and eventually a full hysterectomy caused by Endometriosis, I searched for younger menopausal endurance athletes like me. Unable to find anyone in a similar situation, I had to make my own way back to faster paces and longer distances in a new body without hormones. Running has been my therapy. My running journey began in 2009 and most if it was self-coached. I’ve competed in countless races of all distances up to the marathon. I did not begin finding real success in decreasing my times or running strong until I learned how to run smarter, not harder. That has been the key to my own running and racing successes. Aside from teaching others how to train smarter instead of harder through the VDOT system, I am also a certified Chi Running + Walking Instructor. Chi Running has helped thousands of runners improve their running form – reducing and preventing injuries, while decreasing recovery time. Runners of all ages and levels have improved their efficiency and performance, and now find their running to be pain-free, easier and more enjoyable. I offer both 1-on-1 and group workshops that will help you learn to run with the proper form. My overall goal is to coach athletes of all abilities and show them that they can also reach their own goals, regardless of any obstacles they may be facing. I hope my journey will inspire them and show them that they’re not alone.
