Eileen O'Flaherty
Eileen is a certified Concept 2 UCanRow2 instructor.  She learned to row on The Banks of the Raritan as a member of the Rutgers University varsity women's crew team.  After a 25+ year hiatus from the sport, she became a masters rower and board member of North Carolina Community Sailing & Rowing and then its spin-off organization, North Charlotte Rowing.  Unable to continue training with the team following its relocation to Belmont, she co-founded LKN Indoor Rowing with Carla Jenkins.  Recognizing the tremendous benefits rowing has had in her life and the lives of her husband and three children who all row, Eileen is passionate about introducing the sport to others, especially adaptive athletes.

Meghan Reese
Meghan was introduced to rowing her freshman year of high school through Oklahoma Association for Rowing.  While there, she sat bow in the varsity eight, and lightweight varsity quad and four.  She also coxed the heavyweight varsity four and OAR’s lottery entry in the Head of the Charles Club eight.  After high school, it was several years before she found her way back to rowing.  In Texas she worked with RCTW juniors in The Woodlands.  After moving to North Carolina in 2013, she has coached mostly one on one but helped coach Belmont’s novice juniors in fall of 2014.  Most recently she assisted in closing out the Spring season for Belmont’s varsity crew on Lake Norman and wants to continue to foster the growth of rowing in the North Charlotte Area.

Nancy Schultz
Nancy received her Concept 2 UCanRow2 certification in 2017 and her Vinyasa yoga instructor certification from the Asheville Yoga Center in 2005.  She began her yoga practice 18 years ago coupling yoga with her existing 35 year running schedule. She completed the New York Marathon and many half marathons before switching to walking a few years ago.  She was drawn to LKN Indoor Rowing because it offered the cardio workout she was missing without the joint stress of running. LKN Indoor Rowing is thrilled to offer a rowing and yoga combination class.   

Assistant Coaches:
Paul Pattberg

Paul started rowing in 2012 and quickly caught on to the sport.  Having played tennis in high school, he appreciates the symmetry of sculling since he had issues with muscular imbalances.  His experience training to build his body to account for the torsion of a backswing, along with his military background, and passion for fitness make him a great addition to any coaching team.
