Dana has been an elementary physical education teacher and triathlete for 5 years. After being involved in many sports throughout her life, she decided to put her focus into triathlon immediately following college graduation. Her only regret? Not starting it sooner!
As a coach, Dana prides herself in helping shape the future of triathlon in Tri4Him's youth and junior program. She feels strongly that the key to success and enjoyment in the sport of triathlon is in finding the balance and cultivation of physical and mental preparation. It is crucial to believe in yourself, and set specific, achievable/realistic goals to work towards. Not only is it good to expect this of yourself, but another key to seeing it manifest if surrounding yourself with positive and caring individuals who want to see you make it happen; Coach Dana and the Tri4Him JETpack are those individuals! Coach Dana is excited to be part of developing the youth of triathlon's tomorrow with Tri4Him!
