Born and raised in Edmonds, I have been a member of Harbor Square Athletic Club for more than 20 years. In August 2018 I joined the club staff as a Personal Trainer and MUV instructor.
I received my Certification in Personal Training in 2009 from World Instructor Training School and began working for the Edmonds School District’s MOVE60 program. This innovative community fitness program, free to qualified students, offers local youth opportunities to have fun participating in after-school athletics. Many of these students are not able to participate in traditional organized sports.
I have 30 years of tennis experience and have been a skier even longer. I love to help athletes gain the strength and agility they need for these, and other demanding sports.
I have completed nine marathons (one of those Boston), 15 half marathons, and two half Ironmans. I biked to the top of Mount Haleakala in Maui (solo) and rode STP. I have experienced the lack of sleep and team work of RAGNAR Northwest Passage, and have been a member of the NEO Masters Swim Team in Shoreline for six years.
Facing life’s unexpected obstacles, I have become all too familiar with helping loved ones through the battle of cancer. I am especially devoted to working with others in recovery from this terrible disease—perhaps the greatest physical challenge ever.
