Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I’ve always had an intrinsic drive to be a better athlete, as sports never came naturally to me at a young age. In high school, I did indoor track, field hockey and softball. Following high school, I played Division 3 Field Hockey for Westfield State University, while obtaining my bachelors in Special Education and Psychology. Following my Bachelor’s Degree, I continued my education and received a Master’s Degree and soon started a career as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, serving individuals with Autism, developmental disabilities, and other mental health concerns.
After being a collegiate level athlete, I tried various fitness related hobbies such as bodybuilding, running, intramural sports, and Zumba. During the summer of 2017, a good friend convinced me to come to a partner WOD at her Crossfit gym one Sunday morning. I can remember that day clearly, as it was a very humbling experience to someone who thought they were in decent shape. I was completely hooked from that moment on. I loved the concept of functional fitness, as its benefits made so much sense regarding overall health and longevity. I finally found something that not only brought together a great community of people, but allowed my competitive side to live on.
Crossfit gave me an outlet and motivated me to become a more healthier and overall “fitter” version of myself. Wanting to learn more and teach others in the process, I decided to obtain my Crossfit Level 1 Trainer designation in the Fall of 2021. I am so thankful for the amazing community and coaches that have helped shape me into the Crossfit athlete and Olympic weightlifter I am today. I truly enjoy helping others learn to move well and become healthier, happier, and more fitter versions of themselves. Crossfit allowed me to stay fit before, during, and after pregnancy. My hope is to be the happiest and healthiest version of myself for my husband, Greg and to set a positive example for my daughter, Hailey.
