I am a USAT Level 1, USA Cycling Level 2 and RRCA certified coach and a lifelong athlete who started coaching to help show people that they really can do things they never thought they could.

From my web site:

A competitive age-group swimmer at the state level in high school and captain of both her field hockey and soccer teams, as well as a competitive skier, Denise didnt happen upon endurance running and triathlon until much later in her athletic career. But once she started, she never looked back.

From Ironman Coeur DAlene and the Boston Marathon and everything in between, Denise has competed in triathlons of every distance and countless running events. She is consistently one of the top local female runners in her age group.

Several years ago Denise began to share her passion and knowledge of running and triathlon with others. She began her coaching career leading a beginning womens running group to its first half marathon, led group workouts for the Final Kick Triathlon Club, and conducted transition and other informational clinics at Final Kick Sports and at Virginia Triathlon Series events throughout Virginia.

Her passion and enthusiasm are infectious. Denises experience, knowledge, and support have helped athletes of all levels complete their first triathlon or marathon or earn that podium spot for the first time. Her athletes have qualified for Boston and shaved minutes off their previous PRs.
