I work with all ages from 15-70 and all abilities. I look for a desire to improve and a love of the sport. Through the LUNA Chix I offer many opportunities for women new to the sport to find support and get active. I am working to create some new opportunities for youth in Saratoga County. Triathlon is a lifelong sport and offers kids a great way to build endurance for other sports and stay injury free.I am very focused on injury prevention. I want athletes focused on functional movement. This translates to great results in triathlon, but also a better quality of life at any age.For those who are competitive and want to win - I am right there as well! I regularly place in races and qualify for Nationals each year.I have experience coaching athletes from races from the sprint distance up to Ironman.
