Hey there, I’m a freelance writer, coach, author, and athlete living in Atlanta, GA with my husband, John and our two vizslas Sadie and Bailey. John and I are partners in Atlanta Triathlon Club, one of the largest and most comprehensive group training programs in the country. We are also partners in Energy Lab, a coaching firm and training studio dedicated to helping athletes of all levels learn, train, and perform their best.
Personally, I enjoy coaching and training with my awesome athletes at Energy Lab. I also love to race. Pretty much any type of racing will do! My other passion is writing and I contribute regularly to publications such as Triathlete Magazine, TrainingPeaks, Women’s Running, IRONMAN, and also co-authored the book A Women’s Grief Guide.
Currently I am hard at work on my first solo book project, The Courage to Tri which will walk women through tackling their first event and feature inspirational stories along the way. Kathryn Taylor and I are also hard at work on a podcast, Grit and Dirt, based around the idea that endurance sports can act as a catalyst to improve or change your life. Email me to talk about writing, triathlon, or related projects!
