My Experience, My Passion
I was a collegiate distance runner and began cycling to rehabilitate an injury – I was immediately hooked and have thoroughly enjoyed riding and racing my bike for the last 28 seasons. I have extensive race experience with over 700 career race starts and over 100 podium appearances in events across the US and abroad. I have attained Category 1 status in disciplines of road, track, cyclocross, and cross-country mountain bike.
My cycling success came while having a family and a full-time career as a biomedical research scientist. Undoubtedly, my cycling success is a direct result of adhering to a well-crafted training plan and training with a power meter to efficiently use my limited time and maximize my race performances. I have been competing and training with a power meter for the past 15 years, and understand how to analyze the information to hone my athletes' training plans and to help them race more effectively.
One of my primary goals as a coach is to provide each athlete with training plan options that fit their life commitments, maximizes their limited training time and as a result allows them to meet their athletic potential and goals. As a skilled coach, I continually strive to find the best training option for each athlete that builds upon strengths, limits weaknesses and is an enjoyable path along the way. Additionally, my goal as a coach is to educate my clients and provide resources so that they need me less and less over time. That said, I think that just about every cyclist can benefit from coaching – coaching provides an unbiased external view of the athlete. External input is beneficial to everyone.
