By day, Laurel works in communications. By early morning, evening and weekend she is an endurance athlete and a dedicated coach in helping others to set wild goals and chase after them.
Over the past 10 years, I have coached multi-sport athletes of all ages in swimming, biking, and running. I take a holistic approach to coaching — focusing on the specific work required for each individual athlete to help them get the most out of themselves, identifying an athlete’s overall motivation and how that factors into their long-term development in sport.

I’ll be honest, it’s donuts. I just love them.
