Background

I live in Alexandria, Louisiana, with my husband and two sons. I own S3 Training Performance Center and work as a full-time coach. Juggling a full-time job, a very busy kids schedule, and still competing myself gives me a very good understanding of how to balance career, family, and athletic goals. I fully enjoy coaching and will get the best results for athletes who enjoy the process of gaining fitness and becoming stronger. This is normally the athlete who spends a few extra minutes filling out their daily logs and clearly communicating how they feel during their training sessions.

I firmly believe that athletes who believe in themselves and trust fully in their coach can achieve their goals. The athlete-coach relationship is built on clear and open communication, with which realistic season goals can be set and conquered. The combination of my coaching experience (since 2007) and twenty years of race experience has given me a deep knowledge base in swimming, biking, and running, and I am committed to the continuing education that is necessary for me to stay up to date with the evolving science/research of enhancing athletic performance. I look forward to sharing this information with you!
