COACH MIKE D. (Varsity Assistant Girls)

Coach Mike came to Colgan Crew in 2020 from Justice Crew (formerly JEB Stuart Crew) where he served as the head coach. During his time there he coached junior and varsity women’s boats to medals at VSRC, Stotesbury, and SRAA Nationals.

Mike is a graduate of the USAF Academy (no rowing team there) and served as a career Air Force officer and military/commercial pilot. He started rowing for Prince William Rowing Club (PWRC) in 2000. He rowed and coached for PWRC until joining the JEB Stuart staff in 2012. He sees coaching as a chance to share the sport that meant so much to his daughter who competed for Woodbridge High School.

When not working or at the boathouse, Mike enjoys a good home improvement project and spending time with family.


Coach Mike arrived at Colgan during the teams first year having previously coached for Woodbridge, Forest Park and PWRC. Through his 15+ season coaching, his proudest accomplishment is being able to coach in the same school system that he graduated from and having the opportunity to coach young men and women in this adventure called rowing , filled with life lessons , joy, winning, and wonderful times that will never be forgotten.

In 1993 and 1995 the Washington Post selected Coach Moulen as its All-Met Rowing Coach of Year. 

Coach Moulen is a retired Prince William County Teacher, finishing his career teaching Physics at Colgan.

COACH BETH (Freshman & Novice Girls)

Coach Beth started rowing at Oxford Boathouse her junior year at Potomac High School - mostly because her best friends had joined the team. But that first season of rowing changed her self-perception and transformed her into a rower!

Helping young people build their confidence, mental resilience and physical strength is what motivates Beth’s coaching. Winning is also nice. In Beth’s senior year/second year rowing, she earned a 2nd place in the Varsity 4 at NVSRA’s. Her boat, made up her younger sister and her best friend (who were just Freshman!), were named All-Met’s “Senior Four Boat of the Year”.

Coach Beth went to James Madison University to earn a business degree and coxed, rowed and coached with Prince William Rowing Club. She coached part-time at Lake Braddock when she was teaching Marketing there. And she helped establish the “Rowing Fitness Center” at Gold’s Gym and earned an instructor certificate from Concept 2 Indoor Rowing.  

When not on the Occoquan coaching, Beth enjoys paddle boarding there, doing yoga, training at Gold’s Gym, hiking with her husband and selling houses! (She’s a Realtor with Weichert Realtors in Woodbridge.)



COACH EMILY (Assistant Girls)

Coach Emily began rowing at Justice High School, formerly known as J.E.B. Stuart High School. While there, she was in the women’s varsity quad her sophomore year, earning 2nd place at the Virginia State Championships. Her junior and senior year she was in the varsity lightweight double, where she and her double partner were 2nd place medalists at States her junior year and state champions her senior year.

Emily attended the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where she rowed on the lightweight women’s team, and rowed for Resilient in the summer. Following graduation, she returned to Northern Virginia, where she played rugby with Northern Virginia Women’s Rugby Club. Now she has returned to rowing, and is currently rowing with TBC on the Potomac.

When she is not rowing, Coach Emily enjoys hiking with her dog, playing guitar and piano, and singing.


COACH KEN (Land Fitness Training)

Coach Ken is new to the Colgan crew team this season and is extremely excited to be involved with the program.  He has been involved in fitness training from his days in the Navy getting folks ready for the physical readiness exam, through a variety of youth sports teams (to include a couple of soccer state champions) when his sons were younger, and currently with an outdoor bootcamp-type program. the Embry Mills soccer club, and Colgan Crew.  His workouts focus not only on each individual pushing themselves but perhaps more importantly, each individual motivating, communicating, and coordinating with the rest of the team during the workout.  Each workout is designed to be safe, team-oriented, and, hopefully, a little fun. 

When not making someone do pushups and situps, Ken enjoys family time with his wife, two sons, and three grandkids.  He's also passionate about teaching English conversation skills to folks new to the country.
