Athletics have always been a huge part of my life. I feel blessed to have
been raised in a supportive family who believed in the importance of
sports and fitness. Growing up in Newtown, Pennsylvania I was exposed to
a variety of sports including field hockey, lacrosse, softball and
swimming. I started competitive swimming as a 6 year old and quickly
embraced the training regimen and dedication needed to succeed at a high
level. I was a two-sport varsity athlete at McGill University in
Montreal, Quebec where I was a nationally ranked swimmer and lacrosse
player. There I earned a Bachelor¹s of Science Degree double majoring in
Biology and Psychology.
Post graduation I learned to self motivate and challenge myself to workout
regularly. However, something was missing. I spent time training for
triathlons but my training wasn't nearly as consistent or intense as when
I was training with my teammates. I really missed the camaraderie and sportsmanship that had been associated with athletics my
entire life. And then I found CrossFit!
I have been CrossFitting for a little over a year now and I completely
love it! It has changed my life for the better and has gotten me back on
track with my fitness. I look forward to going to WOD and fully embrace the challenges that each workout brings. I feel like I am constantly achieving new goals and getting stronger everyday. I especially love that CrossFit is fun! I have made so many wonderful friends through CrossFit including my constantly inspirational teammates Tammie and Monica. While each of us has varied athletic goals Crossfit enables us to work together; this support system makes CrossFit all the more rewarding.
I feel very honored to be a part of the CrossFit Kawaihae coaching team.
I received my CrossFit level 1 coaching certificate in December 2012 and look
forward to continue to learn as much as possible about the sport. I find
so much joy in teaching and supporting athletes growth and can't wait to
meet and work with you!
