I grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, moved to NJ, and finally made my way back to PA. One night in late 2010, I purchased a Groupon for Crossfit Lifeforce because of a close friend raved about how great Crossfit was. I had no idea what terrible shape I was in until I did my first WOD. I can’t remember what the WOD was because I probably blacked out after, LOL. After seeing the changes in my strength and endurance, and becoming back of the Crossfit Lifeforce family, I was hooked. I had finally found a place where a female with thick thighs belonged!

I decided to get my Level 1 Certification because the Crossfit community had such a positive impact on my life; I wanted to be able to do the same for others. If I’ve helped a person get closer to a goal, then I’ve succeeded. I coach part time at Crossfit Lifeforce and spend the rest of my day designing protective clothing for our armed forces, specializing in body mobility and ergonomics. While its rewarding, nothing is better than yelling 3…2…1… GO!
