About Coach

I have been working in health and fitness for over 9 years. I've always had a passion for helping others and have constantly found innovative ways to serve - having previously worked in the non-profit sector as well as in student engagement and retention within higher education. Over the last 5 years, you could say I've gone “all in” on health and fitness when I began coaching CrossFit as a Level 1 Trainer in 2015. I loved everything about the methodology - the training, the community, the impact on health & medicine. But what I ultimately fell in love with was everything Crossfit was doing for individuals in terms of lifestyle transformation.

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

My personal vision in life is to continue seeking out ways to empower other people to realize their own potential. CrossFit is one of those ways I have enjoyed doing this on a daily basis. The "sport" is humbling to us all and does not discriminate. Regardless of your athletic background, your age, your ethnicity, your body type, your personal story - CrossFit has a way of getting real with us, teaching us how to handle adversity, and discovering new skills we never thought we could master. I have invested myself into this field because I have seen firsthand the power of improving someone's overall quality of life through consistently showing up and doing the hard stuff - one day at a time - and I believe that transformation is possible for everyone, regardless of where you're at or where you're starting from.
