About Me

I am a NCCP certified competition level triathlon coach, working with athletes of all levels since 2009.  I have coached track and field and cross country running at the middle school and high school levels for over 25 years and have over 30 years of swim instruction experience.  I am now living the dream as a full time triathlon and run coach.  

 

I have been an athlete all my life, but I found my niche at 15 when I fell in love with running.  I was a member of the track and field and cross country running teams at the University of Saskatchewan from 1994-1996.  After becoming a mom I focused on competitive road racing before moving into triathlon in 2007.   Since then I have become a competitive age grouper from the sprint distance up to Ironman.  Some of my racing highlights include:

  • 2014 ITU World Champion 35-39 Standard Distance

  • 2016 Calgary 70.3 overall female amateur champion

  • 2016 Ironman Arizona 2nd place 40-44

  • 2017 Bronze ITU Long Distance World Champs 40-44.

  • 2018 Puerto Rico 70.3 overall female amateur champion

  • 2018 Great White North women's champion

  • 2019 Texas 70.3 1st 40-44

  • 2019 70.3 World Champs, Nice, France 13th 40-44

  • 2021 Ironman Arizona W45-49 Champion

  • 2022 ITU draft legal World Champion 45-49

  • 2x Ironman World Championships Kona

  • PR's: 10km 38:47 / Half Marathon 1:26:49 / Marathon 3:12:57 / 3km track 10:40.66

Improve efficiency and speed

Take your swim stroke to the next level with video stroke analysis or one on one sessions.  In depth video analysis can tweak an already efficient stroke or help newer swimmers correct their form.
