About Me

I’ve been a runner since high school when I ran cross country as part of my nordic ski training. Running has been a part of my life ever since. I’ve sought out running and trails not so much for the competition but for the solace, the community, the adventure, and the beauty. I am a UESCA certified running coach, ultra running coach and endurance sports nutrition coach. I am also a strength and conditioning coach through ISSA. In addition to coaching runners privately at Perennial Endurance Coaching, I coach middle school XC running, nordic skiing and track. I have a science mind so I love training theory and the science behind the hows and whys of training. I enjoy helping people meet their running and health goals and watching them discover just what they are capable of. I enjoy the running community, the camaraderie, the love of adventure, and the desire to push our bodies and minds to new depths and distances.

There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.

My Coaching Style / Methodology

I like to compare my job as a coach to a cairn on a foggy mountain top – there to guide runners on their journey towards race, fitness, and health goals. Good coaching is all about good communication and the ability to meet athletes where they are on their journey. I love getting to know each individual athlete and figuring out, together, what works best for each one. Athletes can expect science-based training plans, regular coach/athlete communication, and a thoughtful long-range plan with the ability to pivot based on what life throws their way. Human to human, coaching is both an art and a science and that is what I love about it.
