Coaching experience: 10 years

Program I have worked with: Middlebury College, Middlebury Union HS, Burlington HS, Burlington Parks & Recreation, Burlington Catamounts.

About me: I started coaching when I was 15, volunteering for Burlington Parks & Recreation youth sports. That early experience inspired me to pursue further development in the field of education. I see teaching and coaching as synonymous; they are about the process of guidance to help others achieve personal growth and unlock human potential. As a student at Middlebury College, I developed skills in pedagogy and educational theory for the classroom, then applied those concepts to coaching by mentoring local student-athletes. I have been blessed to work with some fantastic teachers and coaches that have had such a positive influence on my life. Now, I wish to pay it forward by offering that same guidance to others, regardless of age or ability level.

Athletic achievements: USATF-NE Club Champion, NCAA D3 National Qualifier, NESCAC Conference Champion, All-New England, All-ECAC, Vermont State Champion, Nike Nationals Top 10, Academic All-American
