I have been coaching since 2009, working as a running coach at the high school, collegiate, and adult level. I hold a MS in Kinesiology, am certified as a USATF Level 1 Running Coach, and have experience competing as a D1 collegiate runner.
My coaching and training philosophy is one based on individualism. My approach takes into account a foundation in exercise physiology and sports nutrition combined with a theoretical basis in behavior change and sports psychology. As a coach I want to help you experience some level of positive progression. I believe as a result of individualized training and focusing on the development of the your athletic goals, you will have a positive experience with the sport and develop a lifelong enjoyment of the activity.
Please check out my Coaching Services page for personal online and in-person running programs in the San Francisco Bay Area and Marin County. Below you can find some of my group coaching programs.
You can find me at Whole Athlete as a running coach offering monthly individualized coaching programs as well as options for one-on-one monthly training and workout options. I also can provide assistance in form analysis, strength and conditioning programs for runners, and sports nutrition for endurance athletes. I am also the Head Track and Field Coach at College of Marin.
