Bio & Experience

I have been an athlete all my life playing club soccer and volleyball and snowboarding through the winter. I have been a member of CrossFit gyms on and off since 2012 to supplement my sport training, but quickly realized Crossfit is a sport in and of itself. I have always loved the competitive nature of CrossFit, but more than that, I love the community! CrossFit makes you feel like part of a team and I hope to convey that type of thinking in all of my classes - we are all in this together!

My Fitness Journey: 

As a byproduct of a desk job, a happy relationship, and the world shutting down due to COVID-19, my activity levels plummeted and my health was starting to become a concern. I knew I had to make a change, so over the past year I have dedicated myself to learning as much as possible about food science and exercise. I joined Sand & Steel Fitness as a member and began focusing on building my strength.
