About Coach Amy:
I left the professional world to prepare to be a stay at home mom in 2007. During that time I trained as a birth doula and child birth educator and worked with military families in Korea. I also gained a lot of weight in my back to back pregnancies and after my daughter was born via home birth VBAC in 2010, I felt empowered to lose the 80+ extra pounds that I found myself carrying. After the weight loss I needed a new goal and began distance running, I was hooked!
I have completed multiple full marathons and have ran 1000’s of miles in the last 5 years. I am also a fitness professional holding a national group fitness certification as well as several other specialty certifications including running training/coaching. I have worked with women for the last 7 years as both a doula/childbirth (DONA, LCCE) educator and in the fitness industry.
