“Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”  - Helen Keller


For me, coaching is about creating a partnership with an athlete based on teamwork, experience, integrity, trust, and accountability. It is my goal to bring my professional and personal experience to empower athletes in their own journey to explore what is possible….and have fun doing it!


I am the founder of B4T9 Women’s Cycling Team, which raises funds for grants to organizations that support women and girls in cycling. In my spare time, I love to travel and spend time with my wife, Liz, and our ten-pound Jackahuahua.

Athlete Testimonials

My main goal so far has been returning from injury...Jill has definitely guided me to a smooth transition back to training, and this was the number one priority for me. I'm looking forward to working with her as I build fitness over the winter!   - Beverly F.
