I am lucky enough to get to coach at an outstanding facility as a full time job while still training enough to prepare for competitions like regionals. Training is a huge love of mine and I look forward to both the highs and the lows because I know that Ill always look back on today from a place that is farther ahead of where I currently am


How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Depending on the type of training that I am focusing on I vary my diet to make my training the most effective.
