I am a licensed physical therapist and I have been practicing in the field of orthopedics and sports medicine for over fifteen years. I have always had a passion for sports and fitness. Growing up I played hockey, baseball, soccer, and football and later in life fell in love with running and triathlon. I am an avid alpine skier and I have competed in marathons, triathlons and adventure races and continue to play hockey all of which drive me to stay healthy and fit. I enjoy being in the mountains and have found adventure racing to be the perfect test of endurance and outdoor skills that has led me off of the beaten path into some amazing places.
I grew up in Vermont but spent ten years in Boston where I attended physical therapy school at Northeastern University and learned the art of physical therapy in arguably the best medical community in the world. I returned to Vermont in 2001 and founded ON TRACK with my wife Kim. I am happy to be home where I can enjoy all of the lifestyle opportunities Vermont has to offer and share my passion with others.
Running has always been a passion of mine. I started running in the 7th grade and went on to run cross country and track for the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. After college, I moved to Boston to pursue a Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology. My competitive drive never faded and I eventually caught the Ironman bug. I spent the past ten years racing as a Professional Triathlete. My career highlights include a top U.S. finish and 8th place overall at the Ironman World Championships, two U.S. Ironman National Championship titles, a 70.3 National Championship title and a combined ten Ironman podium finishes.
In 2013, I retired from Professional racing and began a new chapter in my life as a new Mom, high school cross country coach and running and triathlon coach. My goal is to share my knowledge and experience, inspire others and help them realize that with determination and discipline, anything is possible.
I am a native to Burlington, and I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 20 years now! I am a certified personal trainer, and I’m currently working on my ACE Senior Fitness Certification. I have been with OnTrack since 2009, and in that time, I have completed 5 marathons, including the Boston marathon, multiple Spartan races, and even a few figure/bodybuilding shows.
For the past 8 years, I have gotten to work with wonderful people, and I’ve seen them accomplish physical tasks that they never thought they could do before. My goal is to continue helping people accomplish their goals and push them to go beyond what they thought possible, both physically and mentally.
I grew up in Vermont with a strong passion for sports and competition. I was a three sport athlete while attending Middlebury High School playing football, basketball, and lacrosse. I took a post-graduate year at Gould Academy focusing on lacrosse, which allowed me to focus and train with a distinct goal in mind. Through hard work, attention to detail, and trial and error, I developed a training regimen that emphasized my strengths in the sport and focused on improving upon my weaknesses. Results became apparent on the field that spring as I scored a team and state high of 88 goals and 138 points that season. I then had the privilege and opportunity to play Division 1 Lacrosse at Bellarmine University, playing all 4 years.
After my collegiate season was over, I became more interested and involved with fitness and training athletes. I interned and then ran the Strength and Conditioning Program at The Hill School in Pottstown, PA, working with a variety of athletes and sports teams. I have since coached several high school teams, which has only reinforced my love of helping athletes achieve their best. I have found a new passion in golf, not only playing but training as well. I have taken the time to really work on my game on and off the course, pushing myself to constantly improve. I’m excited for the challenges and the rewards of accomplishing the goals I set, and am excited to see where the future takes me.
I have my CPT certification through NASM with specializations in Youth Exercise and Golf Fitness. I am a true believer of “you get out what you put in”. My aim is to help my clients develop a plan that is specific, tailored, and achievable to accomplish goals, both short term and long term. By developing a well-rounded plan and exploring motivation, my clients will be able to fuel their workouts each time they enter the gym, knowing they are taking the proper steps towards achieving their goals. I’m not afraid of failure because without it we wouldn’t know success. Achievement starts with a desire and commitment to change a lifestyle and shift focus to health and well being. I’m here and excited to be part of that journey.
I have spent the majority of my life within the fitness field, being active within sports during grade school, obtaining my bachelors degree in Exercise Science from Castleton University (previously Castleton State College), partaking in obstacle course races and 5k’s, along with competing in a small stint of competitive bodybuilding. Since completing my undergraduate degree, I have continued my education in the fitness field while also studying for a Master’s degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition to gain a well-rounded understanding of the fitness and wellness fields. After having my daughter, I began exploring pre and post-natal fitness along with Pilates workouts.
In my spare, non-fitness related time, you will find me with my daughter, reading a book, cooking (and eating), and coaching youth sports. My goal is to continue moving adequately into my 80’s, while helping others achieve that goal along with any other fitness and wellness goals they may have.
I have been practicing massage therapy since 2006. In addition to working with clients, I have also directed a 600 hour massage education program, certifying new graduates to practice massage upon completion.
Based on the goals of each client, I currently utilize various modalities, including Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Release, Myofascial Release, and Acupressure to help encourage each client to gain an awareness of physical patterns that may be causing pain or restricted movement. Ultimately, massage will alter such patterns for the better.
I have recently been certified in Cranial/Structural Therapy for the effective treatment of headaches and will soon begin a year long training in Structural Energetic Therapy. SET is a full body therapy, integrating Cranial/Structural techniques and specialized soft tissue protocols to produce maximum rehabilitation of physical conditions that cause pain. The ultimate goal is to restore balance, strength, and function in the body long term.
I spend my free time hiking, running, swimming, and skiing at my mountain home, Bolton Valley. I have completed three Spartan Sprint races and may even sign up for a Beast one day.
