For years people have asked me to help them train for races, and in January of 2012 I officially started my online coaching business, Piece of Cake Running. At the time I was a high school science teacher and cross country/track coach. Now I work from home and take care of my two little girls, so coaching helps keep my family afloat.

I have over 10 years of combined coaching experience (high school, D1 college, and POCR clients). I received my BS in Kinesiology in 2003 and MS in Exercise Physiology in 2006 from James Madison University, where I was a 3-time All-American. In 2015 I was inducted into the James Madison University Athletics Hall of Fame.

I am certified by USATF as a Level 1 Coach, license #18349824 (valid July 2017- July 2021)
