Passionate about health and fitness, and helping other’s make positive lifestyle changes.  

Coaching Story

I had originally joined the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society®, Team In Training Program as a participant in 1998 and raised over $16,000 to help fight blood related cancers.  With my strong connection to the cause and a love for running, my involvement quickly grew from participant, to mentor, to team captain, and finally to coach.  During my coaching experience with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society®, Team-In-Training Marathon program, I successfully coached hundreds of athletes to and across the finish line.

Athletic Accomplishments & Daily Practice

My personal athletic accomplishments include completing Ironman Switzerland, Ironman Austria, over 27 full marathons and countless 1⁄2 marathons and shorter distance events.  I have qualified for and completed the Boston Marathon on several occasions.   In addition to running, I have a daily yoga practice.  My love for yoga has grown significantly over the years.  I find that no matter where I go, I am home on my mat.

Other Interests

My other interests include swimming, cycling, reading, traveling, volunteering, art, fashion, trends, technology, learning new things…the list goes on and on.  What can I say?  I find life interesting.  Being a life-long learner, I am working toward my PhD in Depth Psychology.


I love to travel.  It opens me to new worlds and different points of view.  One of my favorite trips was a month-long stay in San Marcos, Guatemala.  Such a beautiful and spiritual place.  Most recently, I spent several weeks in Thailand and Cambodia.
