In 2018, after many years of lifting to get stronger, and running to run faster, with no real purpose or goal, I was pushed towards CrossFit by a friend. At first I truly didn't understand the methodology, and the "why" behind any of what I then would have called madness. After a 1 short month, I stopped and went back to my normal regiment. A year later I gave it another go, and before I knew it, going to CrossFit class after my full school day of being a teacher 4 days a week.


Then good old COVID tried to wedge its way into the steady progress I was making as an athlete gearing up to do my first CrossFit open. Thankfully I made good connections at the gym and got to continue my training, and since I had an abundance of free time on my hands, that was the year I took CrossFit from a way to stay fit, to setting goals to push heavier weights, be able to do all movements, and crush any and all Wods possible. The year is now 2021 and I loved CrossFit and everything about it, so I decided to take the L1 course to increase my knowledge of CrossFit, and potentially coach after getting it.


My coaching journey started in December of 2021. I coached twice a week after a full school day for about a year, and continued to coach once a week on top of training for my personal goals. I have since taken CrossFit's Scaling course, and Programming course to continue my knowledge. I am beyond excited to bring my competitive knowledge, love of CrossFit and goal setting to the Cream City community to only help people hit their goals, and their CrossFit stride.
