About Coach

Kym is from the same area code as Coach Jeremy in northern Illinois, and she went to the same college in Wisconsin as Coach Jon - many years apart ;). She ran the 400m hurdles and 800m at Marquette University. She has an ultramarathoner husband and three kids, two girls in college and one boy still in high school. She recently retired after teaching High School Spanish for 26 years, and THIS is her retirement gig! Life is GOOD!
