Head Coach - Gold Group
I am an ASCA Level 3 certified coach. I have been coaching over 15 years now. I set goals to constantly bring up to date my level of coaching. I endeavor to work hard for my swimmers by keeping documented educational hours, test, and provide the required "performance achievements" and submit verification/data to receive the certification. I have coached High School All Americans, Age Group National Top 16 Swimmers, and had those swimmers qualify for USS Nationals. I was selected to serve as the coach for the 13-14 years olds representing the Pacific Northwest All Stars Team and the North American Challenge Cup.
I coached in the Oregon Swimming area for a number of years, and it is where most of my performance swimmers were recorded. I coached high school swimming for 5 high schools, with a combined number of as many as 118 swimmers in a season, (Camas High, Battle Ground High, Washougal High, Hockinson High, and Brush Prairie).
I was an athlete all my life, and even as a master's athlete after graduating from Oregon State University, I competed in Ironman competitions (many), running and bicycle racing.
