The thought, “Well, this is it, my triathlon days are over.” has crossed my mind more than once in my 20 years of being a triathlete. The first time was when I went to West Point, and the deployment orders came down: it was time to go to war in Baghdad and suddenly swim, bike, run didn’t seem all that important. However, having twins just 2 years after I returned presented the biggest challenge to my triathlon days. Sure I was 30 pounds over race weight, exhausted out of my mind, and knee deep in poopy diapers – but I wasn’t ready to give up on myself just quite yet.

After 3 professional Ironman 70.3 victories later, multiple Ironman and 70.3 podiums, and being a guide for the Paralympics in Rio for triathlon, I can say my proudest accomplishment is refusing to believe it can’t be done while raising kids that I’m so incredibly proud of.

I don’t believe that raw talent alone will take you to Kona. My coaching style is based on the foundation of building resilient athletes. Because lets face it, if you don’t know how to pick yourself up during the hard times, you’ll never really taste the true satisfaction of success.

Real people - just like you - go faster with Jess. Every day of the week.

I am in my mid-forties and was a bit pear shaped. Jessica has gotten me to the end of two 70.3's healthy and beating my goal times in less than a year.

Meeting Jess and having her as a coach and friend has meant much more to me than the coaching! Jess is flexible and knows you’re a busy adult with a full life outside of triathlon. I’ve recommended her expertise to several friends and family.

The most valuable part of Jess' coaching was her personal investment of her time, knowledge, and expertise into my success. I highly recommend Jess whether you are just looking to finish your first triathlon or take your racing to the next level!

Jess was patient with my progress and setbacks along the way and has been great scheduling around my work hours. I am very proud to call Jess my coach and friend. I highly recommend her to anyone who asks for a coach!

While I have always admired Jess as an accomplished runner and triathlete, it is her gift of coaching that I treasure the most. Her encouragement and empathy helps me to preserve when "life gets in the way," and her vast race experiences helps me to set challenging, but realistic and attainable goals.
