Area of Expertise (Sports and Body Areas)
I specialize in working with endurance athletes ranging including triathletes, runners/ultra-runners, cyclists/ultra-cyclists, swimmers, obstacle course racers, and rowing. Additionally, I work with young athletes of all sports and developmental levels.
Background and Personal Athletic Experience
I grew up a competitive soccer player and turned endurance athlete when I was 22 years old. Since then, I have competed in triathlon (short course to Ironman), running/ultra-running (100 mile races), cycling/ultra-cycling, and obstacle course racing. My mantra I live with is, “if you don’t push yourself to the mental, physical and nutritional limits, how do you know where your limits are?”. I like to constantly try new methods and distances within training and competition.
Affiliations with other Hospitals, Clinics, Clubs, Teams, etc.
I own eNRG Performance and work with athletes not only in my community but world wide.
