Snowdrop 100 Miler 2014

Just having started running in 2008, I’ve spent the next seven years struggling to find a nutrition plan that will help me perform at my best. I’ve spent countless hours researching and experimenting on myself only to come up with no answers. I found myself frustrated not being able to push myself to the potential my training said was possible. I “bonked” quickly on high intensity races and/or long endurance events. The only things that kept me going during these times were high carb fuels and mental strength.

Early 2015, a friend of mine told me about a class she was taking on metabolic efficiency for athletes in Colorado. The company conducting the class was eNRG Performance and they are the founders of the program (Bob Seebohar). I was intrigued and a bit desperate at this point. Attending the class was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. Finally some hope that I could be taken to the next level.

Since the training class, I’ve implemented the nutrition lifestyle on myself and have felt a night and day difference. I broke my personal record at Texas 70.3 in Galveston by 20 minutes! A couple weeks later I won first place overall women and masters at TriGirl Super Sprint. I’ve always dreamed of feeling this good in my training/races and now I do!

Being a mom of two young boys, I know what it’s like to live a busy life. It’s not easy juggling everyone’s schedules and trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I try to help you find balance in it all. I am an IRONMAN Certified Coach. I offer combined training and nutrition options available for everyone.

IRONMAN Austria 2015



Jessica Baxter literally change my life with her nutrition coaching. I was training for my first Ironman 70.3 race and was having a rough time with nutrition. I was gaining weight , not sleeping well & experiencing post workout fatigue. I was having great success with UCAN during my workouts but,I read that by adding metabolic efficiency to UCAN an athlete could be even more successful. So I scheduled a phone consult with Jessica and she taught me how to eat, not just for training but for every day life! Bottom line by race day I had lost 5 lbs so I was at what I know to be my perfect race weight and I felt fabulous. I scheduled another consult with Jessica to dial in my UCAN nutrition plan for race day and my pre-race meals. Again worked like a charm because by race day my body was metabolically efficient. Not only did I finish Augusta 70.3 at the age of 54 but, I killed my best case time goal! I have struggled with yo-yo dieting and being hungry all my life. Even though my training volume has been lower the last 3 months I am keeping my weight within the 5 lb window I set for myself. I am not hungry all the time because Jessica taught me how to eat healthy without counting calories. Many thanks Jessica for helping me and inspiring so many others with your coaching and racing.
