I believe that it is my life’s purpose to lead people to a healthier lifestyle. I earned my B.S. in Exercise Physiology from The George Washington University which led me to working fulltime as a lifestyle and wellness counselor for older adults and part-time as a fitness coach. I walked on to the D1 lacrosse team at GW and it was the first time I was introduced to a formal strength and conditioning program. While I’ve always thrived off of competition and loved playing, I realized that I enjoyed the training in the gym better than the practice on the field.
A couple years into my career, I went back to school and became a registered nurse. At that time, I also began training and then competing in CrossFit. As a CrossFit athlete, you learn again and again in a very physical and objective way that you get out what you put into your training. I believe participating in CrossFit brings out the best in people. I want to inspire others to make their health a priority and I know that being active can do that for them. As a nurse, my clinical knowledge and experience allow me have an even greater influence on the health of the people I work with. I am grateful that my passion for athletics and my professional career are able to align to positively impact others.
