My Story

A Lifelong Athlete

From the time I was 3 years old all the way through graduate school I was always part of a team and competing at a high level. Despite no longer being on an organized team I still identify as an athlete and don’t think that will ever change. Working as an online personal trainer and running coach allows me to help others fall in love with the process of improving their fitness.

After I finished my collegiate rowing career I felt a bit lost when it came to exercising – I’d never had to plan it out myself or schedule time to do it. I had been attending scheduled practices my whole life and never had to decide what I wanted to do for the day’s workout. After some time off, I finally found outlets in running and strength training.

I love the feelings of pride and accomplishment I get after finishing a run or challenging workout. I want to encourage others to celebrate what their bodies can do! The process of training and finding ways to get a little bit better every day is empowering. Progress takes time, consistency, and commitment. As a coach, I help my athletes find joy in training and recognize their progress while still looking forward to their goals. We are capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for! Be proud of the work you’re putting in.

My Experience

Regular strength training can play an integral part to achieving your potential as a runner. You CAN do both! I am a firm believer in complementary hybrid training – you can lift weights and train for a marathon at the same time. It’s about finding the right counterbalance of those things with the demands of life that allows you to succeed.

I have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Kinesiology from Michigan State University, where I also competed as a Division 1 athlete. I am an NASM Certified Personal Trainer, an RRCA Certified Running Coach, and a certified group fitness instructor (including Keiser Indoor Cycling and MOSSA Group Power) and an NASM Golf Fitness Specialist. My experience and background give me the knowledge and tools to guide you in a way that allows you to get the most out of your training. 

The half marathon distance is my favorite to train for and so far I have run 21 half marathons. In addition, I have completed four full marathons, including the Boston Marathon. My husband Lucas and I are in the process of running a half marathon in all 50 states. We also enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, and traveling!

The benefits of running and strength training can spread to every area of your life. No matter where you are in your fitness journey it’s never too late to get started. Find and serve the athlete within you. I’m looking forward to being a part of your fitness journey!
