I grew up in Rockland MA, and started getting active when I was 5 by doing dance and gymnastics. I began playing soccer when I was 8 and moved into playing competitive club soccer as a goalie when I was 10. During high school I played soccer for 4 years, was co-captain my junior and senior years, and played softball for 3 years. In college I played club soccer & intramurals for 4 years. I attended the University of Connecticut for my undergrad focusing on Sport Communication. I attended Southern New Hampshire University for grad school and majored in Sport Management with a grad certificate in International Sport Business, graduating magna cum laude in December 2010.
My CrossFit life began 3 years ago at Reebok CrossFit One. As an employee at Reebok I was blessed to be introduced to a new workout program that Reebok was beginning to partner with. I went from doing my regular cardio on the elliptical and free weights 3 times a week to going to CrossFit classes at lunch 4-5 days a week and I haven’t looked back! I’ve participated in 3 CrossFit Opens and have gotten better and stronger each year. I earned my CrossFit Level 1 certificate in October 2011 and began coaching at RCFBC in February 2013. Like Rich Froning & Ben Smith my journey in life, as an athlete, and as a coach, is led by my faith.
The best thing about CrossFit is how it changes people’s lives mentally, physically, and emotionally and I am so blessed to be able to be a part of that. To see someone who starts CrossFit and to be able to watch their journey and their personal growth is the greatest reward to me and there is no better place to do that than at BareCove!
