About Coach

I always loved being active. From soccer practice at age three to lifeguarding as a teenager. Also, played the Trombone from 4th grade to senior year in high school. Yes, I was part of the marching band. I spent summer vacation biking across town to the pool, lifeguarding, swimming, and enjoying the outdoors. Doing flips off the diving board and talking with track athletes at the pool, they convinced me to watch the varsity athletes pole vaulting practice. I was hooked. I joined the team and was added to the special team’s roster in High School. Some of the events I participated in were the 100m sprint, 100m hurdles, 200m sprint, and 400m sprint/hurdles. Pole vault, high jump, Long jump, and triple jump. I can still remember being part of the 4x400m relay team, running the 3rd leg at the Armory in 52 seconds.

Turning Point

Unfortunately, my schooling was not going well, and my financial position forced me to take a full-time job that turned me on to cigarettes. Long hours in the cold and a bad fall at work left me with multiple surgeries and long-term injuries, which, combined with smoking, severely impacted my fitness journey. Depressed and frustrated, I began powerlifting, hoping it would help my body heal. Shortly after, I discovered CrossFit. Immediately after my first class I went into my car, grabbed the half-smoked pack of cigarettes, and threw them away. That day, back in 2015, was the day I decided to take my life back.

Motivation & Passion

CrossFit became the thing I started to depend on to feel better: To feel human again. I became a co-owner of a CrossFit box and gained my L1 to start coaching. Now, there’s nothing I love more than watching other people’s lives change through CrossFit and helping them along the journey that has transformed my life, my attitude, and my outlook. I can’t help but also get excited for the members I coach when I have the privilege of witnessing theirs.
