“I grew up in West Chester, PA where my family still lives there now, including my 3 beautiful doggies (Hunter, Addison & Lincoln). I attended Salisbury University where I received my Bachelors in Communication Arts. Following college, I worked in management at a commercial gym in West Chester. I have played team sports my whole life, soccer being my main sport.
Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I got into weightlifting during High School and have been seeking new ways to challenge myself physically ever since. Recently, I have discovered and thoroughly enjoyed Crossfit as a new avenue to challenge myself. The encouragement of others during the workout was completely different for me, as I was used to the “headphones on, head down” commercial gym atmosphere.
