From the Mountains to the Sea

Illustrated Mountains


Experienced Adventure Sports Coach & Educator

My role as a coach is to assist athletes in their whole-person development by training for and through their sport. By providing safe, enjoyable, and learning experiences the athletes will cultivate attitudes that influence their behaviors leading towards quality actions. 
I value respect, integrity, compassion, and excellence. Respect involves recognizing the dignity and rights of every person, all living beings, and the places we live. Integrity is being one’s genuine and authentic self and displaying behaviors and actions that are ethically sound. Compassion is demonstrating empathy for others and seeking ways to raise everyone up. Excellence is constant striving and seeking for quality in performance and actions without yielding.
Coaching involves striving towards outcomes by focusing on attitudes, developing relationships, and learning skills. At the core of coaching is a positive relationship with an athlete. A quality coach demonstrates unconditional positive regard for all athletes. A coach needs to be athlete-centered, and they must seek a balance of who is driving the training. A coach needs to model the attitudes, behaviors, and actions that are expected and demanded of the athletes. All coaches are educators, and they embody and use elements of effective teaching and instruction.
