Credentials & Expertise:
I specialize in short-course (sprint and Olympic distance) triathlon events. The swim is my favorite leg, and I can teach athletes how to get the most out of this often-underappreciated part of their race!
- USAT Level 1
- USA Swimming Certified Coach
Coaching Dynamic Preferences:
Whatever works best for the athlete, although for swimming (especially technique!) I prefer in-person.
I participated in 13 years of competitive swimming, from when I was 8 years old up through college in 2014. I began competing in triathlons in 2016, which was also the same year I began coaching college swimming.
I have coached college swimmers, age group swimmers, and adults learning to swim as both a life skill and a competitive skill. I was invited to USA Triathlon Nationals this year, and currently work with the Upper Arlington Swim Club age group team in Columbus.
