My Passion

My parents were teachers. They told me, don’t go into teaching. It doesn’t pay enough and it’s hard work. So being a good daughter, I became an environmental scientist and an emergency manager. But one of the things that brings me the most joy and is truly my passion….is teaching. I love teaching people something new, be it how to talk to your family about communicating during an emergency or how to perfect the most amazing hip hinge. I love teaching. Yes, and it is probably a little nature and some nurture for you science nerds.

What I Love about Coaching

The opportunity to wear my blazer and my leotard at the same time. OH YEAH!!! 🙂 I love encouraging people to do things that they thought they couldn’t do. One thing I’ve learned in my athletic career is that the most limiting factor in anything you want to do with your body…is your mind! When I hand you a weight, it’s because I believe in you and your abilities. I truly love that moment when you realize just how amazing you are and what your body can do when you just let it! I love honoring our bodies as amazing machines and that moment when you realize just how strong you are. I believe in you and I want you to believe in you too. When that moment hits, it is coaching bliss.
