I’ve coached cross country and track & field for 21 years, working with middle school, high school, collegiate, professional, and masters’ athletes in that time period. I also have a background as an endurance athlete and competed at the high school, collegiate, and post collegiate levels. (I raced Coach Dalby once in college, we can discuss results at another time!) Here in Colorado, I have been involved with Lyons high school in various capacities since 2010. Additionally, I am starting my second season at Niwot high school helping with weekly therapy sessions.
In 2017, I became a licensed massage therapist. The intent was to add another skillset to my coaching toolbox. Through continuing education opportunities and learning from mentors, I saw how the specific and consistent implementation of manual therapy could benefit performance through better athlete health. I have continued to see that dynamic hold true by implementing this approach with a variety of athletes. The goal is to bring this methodology for athlete health and performance to the Mountain Vista cross country program.
I hold a variety of certifications from the US Track and Field governing body and professional coaches’ association. USATF level 1 and level 2 (endurance) certifications. USTFCCCA jumps specialist certification. I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of Colorado (MT.0020779).
