Meet Coach

When I was 14 years old, my youngest brother's soccer coach asked me if I was interested in being his assistant coach. I quickly obliged, and within a few years I was head coach of a team in the same organization I played for as a kid! I continued coaching there for 30 years! Fast forward to my professional career, and you'll find a history of associate and team building, training, and coaching. See a theme here? After a few years of attending True Core classes, coach Joanna asked me if I was interested in giving CrossFit coaching a try. I told her not until she asked me, and I've onboard ever since!

Turning Point

These days I consider each day a new challenge or turning point. I'm in a competition with myself to be a better athlete, coach, and person than the day prior. Some days progress may feel negligible, but an inch forward beats a step backward.

Motivation and Passion

I took great pride in seeing the soccer teams and players I coached recognize their growth each season. Week-over-week or year-over-year, it didn’t matter to me as long as they walked away knowing they’d improved. This extends to my office job and coaching classes at True Core. When someone does their first pull-up, a barbell movement they previously hadn't been able to, or runs their first mile in years, and I can be just a small part of what helped them, it brings me joy and motivates me to keep pushing myself!
