What do you do?  

I help adults of all athletic abilities reach their fitness goals.

I love it! I love helping people and seeing them reach their goals.

What was your Catalyst? (How did you get started?)

I took the leap into full time coaching when my friend asked if I would help her train for a marathon.

That you have to be an elite athlete to be a good coach.

That’s hard, because I love it so much I don’t find it challenging. I guess maybe staying on top of all the CEUs for my certifications.
