We will continue to update as we have more information.
This is my first year as head coach after working as the assistant coach for UMS CC for three years. I am SO excited to continue working with this amazing program!
I have been running for 14 years now- first for Lane Tech HS in Chicago, then for Illinois Wesleyan in Normal, and now with UMS. I love distance running and have run 2 half marathons, 5 marathons, 1 ultra-marathon (50K up a volcano), and 2 sprint triathlons.
I am also a 4th grade Dual Language teacher at Dr. Williams in Urbana.
I started volunteering on Wednesdays in 2012. I am a Master Sergeant in the Illinois State Police. I supervise two investigative units; one investigates violent crime and the other dismantles clandestine meth labs. I have had a career in law enforcement since 1990. My coaching style can best be described as early 1990s police academy minus the perfectly made beds and squared away bathrooms, although if parents would like, we can implement that as well.
