My Story

I am an endurance athlete with a passion for helping athletes of all kinds accomplish their mental and physical goals. My journey began in 2002 when I discovered Ashtanga Yoga. I believe that the breathing, mantras and visualization techniques that are so critical for yoga extend far beyond the mat to help us find a state of flow. I fell in love with running just a few months after the birth of my first daughter in 2008, and since then I’ve completed countless road and trail races. I credit my yoga practice for keeping me focused and injury free. My career shifted to developing yoga and other athletic programming in 2014.

I believe that life isn’t black and white, so neither is my approach to coaching. Trust your abilities, believe in your training, finish with heart and just be damn proud.
