Experience and certification

I have Level 3 USATF certification, this is the highest level of the USATF Coaching Education Program. It prepares coaches with a rigorous scientific base that is applied as a multidisciplinary approach to coaching high level athletes. In conjunction with the USATF Level 3 I attended the IAAF Academy School that provided me with the highest international coaching certification.

I have been National team coach for TeamUSA at the 2022 NACAC track and field championships in Freeport, Bahamas. I also travelled as US Womens Team coach to the Great Stirling Cross Country 2019.

I am a USATF Coaching Education Instructor, teaching coaching education across North America. I am also the chair of USATF Coaching Education.

My coaching experience includes assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Stanford University. I currently coach the Run Boulder Athletic club in Colorado.

In 2021 I was the recipient of the "Terry Crawford Distinguised Female in Coaching" award. In December, 2017 I was awarded the "Level 2 Coaches Rising Star Award" from USATF, USA Track & Field.
