Born and raised in Normal, Illinois, but I have made my home in Brooklyn. I have lived here for about 10 years. In this time I have grown my passion in fitness and education. In addition to working as a personal trainer, CrossFit, and BirthFit coach, I am a teacher and an administrator in Early Childhood Education.
I have always been interested in fitness; playing soccer, running, lifting weights, etc. Seven years ago I began doing CrossFit. I wanted to learn more about weightlifting and found a great community at Park Slope CrossFit. I have competed in CrossFit competitions (as an individual and on teams) and have also competed in Power Lifting. I am now an athlete and coach at CrossFit Sunset Park.
