Born and bred native New Yorker, I'm known as the loud coach at CFH, but I blame it on my roots! I started CrossFit in March 2012 and it has changed my life. I walked into a local box before I moved to Charlotte, looking for a workout and was immediately hooked. CrossFit helps me channel stress, challenge myself, and compete. At the time in my life when I began, it was exactly what I needed, and continues to be so much more than just a workout.
Before CrossFit, I tried most every kind of exercise out there! I was a college athlete (basketball) and also was a multi-sport high school athlete. I also focused my college degrees on exercise and movement, and have both a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Physical Education.
Besides coaching at CrossFit Harrisburg, I'm a Part-time Elementary Physical Education teacher in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. I also have over 10 years of experience as both a teacher and as a high school basketball, softball and volleyball coach. I love to introduce movement and physical activity to children, but it's just as rewarding teaching CrossFit to new members, which is what you'll see me doing a lot of the time.
I live in the Harrisburg community with my husband and my son, who you will often see at the box. CrossFit Harrisburg is my home away from home and I'm lucky to have it as part of my every day. The community has become my Charlotte family.
