When I walked into my first CrossFit class in 2017, I thought my days of being a competitive athlete were long gone. I had always been athletic, disciplined, and loved working hard, all of which I attributed to playing collegiate soccer. So after college, I took all those tools and leaned into running which was super fun, but it lacked something. I ran four marathons, a few half-marathons, some 10ks, trail races, you name it! I even qualified for the Boston Marathon with a time of 3:30:36 (!!!) but running never gave me the feeling of success and community that soccer had always provided. It wasn’t until my best friend and former teammate finally convinced me to walk into a CrossFit gym that I realized my fittest days and most rewarding relationships were still to come.
Fast forward a little over five years and I’ve never been more grateful to have joined and be welcomed by the global community that is CrossFit. Over the course of several years, several gyms, several jobs, and countless classes, I’ve made lifelong friends and shared incredible experiences that I wouldn’t have otherwise known if not for this sport. Coaching is a privilege that I hold in high regard because it is personal: I take pride knowing that we’re here to be the best hour of someone’s day, every day, and that’s really special.
Outside of the gym, I coach women’s soccer at Marymount University where I’m also pursuing a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. If I’m not in the gym (or studying lol), I’m out hiking or running with my GSP, Moose.
