Team Training New England, LLC
Co-owner/Founder & Co-Head Coach
2005 – 2015
In collaboration with my partner, I recruited, coordinated, organized and trained teams of women and men (average 30-40 participants per season) to compete in sprint and Olympic distance triathlons for an annual summer training program. We delivered relevant lectures, coordinated related speakers, instructors and experts, recommended gear, equipment and apparel and arranged discounts at local businesses. Our goal was to introduce the athletes to the many varied aspects of training-related information throughout the season.
In collaboration with my partner, I planned an annual three-day women’s health retreat at Camp Robin Hood in Freedom, NH.
This retreat is for anyone who wants to relax, eat well and have some good ‘ol fashioned fun! Hang with your friends and make some new ones. It’s the spirit of camp with the company of women.
