Coaching Philosophy: I strongly believe that hard work and dedication can triumph over natural
physical ability. Any athlete who commits to a goal and pursues it wholeheartedly can achieve
tremendous personal success. Similarly, teammates who commit to each other and hold themselves
accountable produce team victories. I am a firm believer in a positive learning environment, where
teammates encourage and support one another to achieve both athletic and academic success.
Coaching Experience: I worked as an assistant cross country coach at a previous school that won state
championships for both the boys and girls teams. In the first season at Heritage Academy, the boys’
team won the state championship.
Running Career: I have run distance races for over 15 years. I participated in 3 marathons, 22 half
marathons, 3 Ragnar Relays, and many adventure/obstacle races.
