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 experience and knowledge from a decade of competing on the World stage.
Next-level performances come from tapping into our current capacity on a daily basis and, in doing so, we continue to push new boundaries of potential far beyond our imagination. This is the Groundwork.
