Providing professional support for others to unlock their own tools for High Performance

Look for upcoming workshop offerings or contact directly to book for your team, club or school. These workshops or speaking engagements are offered as a series or by topic of interest around High Performance Tools.

dry-land training

The best athletes are the most diversified in their athletic abilities. These training sessions are specifically designed to "RE-condition" by focusing on proper movement patterns that are beneficial to any sport and provide a strong foundational base of all-around athletic training that can be done throughout the season, in the off-season, or as a part of the sporting program with sport club.

mindset mentoring

A program that allows athletes to access their performance code that creates more adaptable, confident and resilient leaders on and off the field. This is a "whole"-listic approach in the pursuit of excellence, in a Mind, Body, and Spirit alignment towards meaningful practices that build character and a strong mindset for life.

guest coach

Available for track and field specific event coaching. With my background in heptathlon (7 track & field events), this is my greatest passion. I have immense knowledge of all the events from great coaches throughout my career and from my experiences in competing in the sport at the international level for over a decade.
