I was interested in and participated in various sports at a young age, and had been part of an athletic team through high school. Originally attending college for a degree in Architecture, I realized that though it may be a degree I’m able to obtain and a profession I’m able to do well in, I did not have a passion for it. When I finally realized that my passion was in the health and fitness world, that’s where I discovered my love for fitness as a whole. I became a certified personal trainer through the NSCA in 2013, graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise and Wellness in 2014, and do have long-term career goals to become a physical therapist. However, my journey in CrossFit did not start until 2015.
I became interested in competing in Spartan Race events in 2015, and after years of the traditional gym setting, I realized that with the knowledge I obtained through school and new goals I wanted to achieve, I had to try something new. The years of experience in a traditional gym made my transition to CrossFit relatively easy, but this new drive to excel in Spartan Race competitions, CrossFit competitions, and master not just one thing but be great doing everything from heavy weightlifting to bodyweight conditioning is what keeps that CrossFit fire burning within me. I received my CrossFit-Level 1 Certificate in April 2016, and look forward to developing my strengths and talents as a coach and as an athlete
