Biography

Coaching since 2016.

With Ballston CrossFit since January 2022.

I am a CrossFit Coach and a Certified Personal trainer with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I began my CrossFit journey in 2016 in one of the boxes in Abu Dhabi where I lived for 6 years. I fell in love with CrossFit because this sport has a funny way of making you stay humble.

I put a big emphasis on gymnastics movements when coaching others. I believe that if you can move your body well and efficiently in space it then transfers to strength and efficiency in other elements of CrossFit. An interesting fact about me is that I have been embracing a plant-based lifestyle for 2 years. I love coffee and can eat all the time. My husband says “No food or snacks are safe in the house”.

I value good technique and effort. My goal is to make everyone’s CrossFit class the best part of their day.

In my free time I loves hanging out with friends and taking my dog for a hike.

I hold the following qualifications:

  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CF-L1
  • CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, CF-L2
