You may best recognize me as a two-time Olympian in the sport of track & field. Now, as a coach and performance consultant, I am excited to share my experiences and knowledge from a decade of competing on the World stage.
My passion is to seek out and share evolutionary tools to enhance the athlete experience. It is time to address the unmet needs in the athlete development model and set the stage for substantial experiences through performance and sport.
