In short, I see myself as an energetic and easy-going coach who has the advanced knowledge and skills to guide my thrower to peak at the right time.
I began my Javelin throwing career at Allen County Community College in Kansas. I had the opportunity to compete against Canadian Javelin Record Holder Scott Russell and many other great Javelin throwers. I earned my spot as NJCAA Division I All-American Javelin thrower.
I spent a year training at East Tennessee State University where I worked closely with Meg Stone who was an Olympic Medalist in the Shot Put and Discus Throw. I gained great knowledge on the Olympic lifts, Javelin Specific training and Peak Performance type training.
I spent my last two years at Keene State College where I immediately made an impact. My two years attending I accomplished breaking the 20 year old Javelin record by over 5 meters marking 65.18 meters (213.10). I was ranked 1st in the nation in the Javelin throw for NCAA Division III and remained nationally ranked and respected my 2nd year.
In 2012 I earned 1st place in the USATF Track and Field Club National Championships in Omaha, Nebraska.
