Coaching Philosophy?

Coaching to me is like taking a journey, along with my athletes, to their personal
bests. I really enjoy seeing achieve their goals. I put 100% into the program and
believe the athlete will, too!

Most memorable coaching moment?

Oh there are a lot of memorable coaching moments; from the first time an athlete
runs a distance, the PB that the athlete felt was unattainable, to the first time BQing.

Favourite post-workout treat or go-to place?

I am a food motivated athlete.  The post workout treat is sometimes as important as the workout! In Vancouver I enjoy a sweet and guey Cinamin bun from Grounds Coffee.  When I am back in Ontario and hopefully ran a good race, my aunts cupcakes “take the cake”.
