About Julie

I have been athletic my entire life, but it wasn’t until my 40s when I started trail running and made competitive sport a priority in my life. And it wasn’t until I took up mountain biking that I truly felt like an athlete, and it ended up changing my life in ways I couldn’t have imagined.

As a Cat 1 athlete I, despite doing all the wrong things, I was successful racing. But the biggest reward was being on a cycling team and being a part of the cycling community. My desire to perform as an athlete inevitably lead me to pursue a career in helping people improve their own performance.

Coaching Philosophy

Creating goals is great, but the journey is more important. Learning about your strengths, testing your character, pushing through and making it to the other side are some of the valuable lessons we learn as an athlete. Helping you realize your potential and believing in yourself is my reward too.
