I grew up in Connecticut and played sports since I could walk. I’ve played basketball, volleyball, track & field, lacrosse, soccer and swimming, and I always knew I loved anything involving the body, health, and fitness. I went to school at Lynchburg College where I got a degree in Exercise Physiology. I now live in Newport News, VA where I am the Head Coach of Crossfit Oyster Point. I have been competing in Crossfit since 2013. I started in the sport because I was looking for a new, fun, competitive environment to work out in after deciding to not play Volleyball in college. Throughout the years I have competed at multiple local competitions as well as national competitions. I placed 3rd in the Pro Division at the Richmond Superfit Games. I was also on a 2016 Crossfit Atlantic Regionals team and a 2017 Granite Games Pro Team of 3. Along with coaching group classes and personal training I am also a Nutrition Coach. I love helping people reach their full health and fitness potential inside and outside the gym. Over the years I have learned and discovered that the 1 hour in the gym is important but the additional 23 hours of your movement, your fuel and your recovery are even more important! That’s why I love the Purus Labs products, because they help you really maximize on your time that you’re in the gym but also have great products to address how your body is recovering outside of training!
