Purpose Statement

My purpose is to give my athletes life changing journeys through in-depth individual training and coaching. I bring tireless commitment, gratitude, compassion, knowledge, and experience to you. Together, we will work hand in hand to achieve your dreams.

"Our coaches are unsung heroes. They write amazing training plans, teach us proper technique, advise us about nutrition, deal with our pre-race emotions, inspire us to dream, and care about us as people. And yet, when we PR or podium, they get little or no recognition. 

My coach, Brant Bahler, and I are a team of two. His job is to write a perfect training plan. My job is to execute his plan perfectly. My success is his success, and visa-versa! Big kudos to Coach Brant and to all triathlon coaches who deserve the highest accolade for the role they play in their triathletes’ successes!
