I met Barry and Jocelyn back in 2008 when my swim team started doing sessions with CrossFit Generation. I continued working out there on my own through high school and when home on break from college. I went to East Stroudsburg University and earned my BS in Exercise Science with a concentration in Strength and Conditioning. While in college I got my CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Kids and once out of school I got my ACSM Certified Gr Exercise Instructor certification. My next plan is to study and get my personal trainer as well as CSCS certifications.
CrossFit is what led to my passion for fitness and why I chose my career path. I was exposed to it at such a young age, I knew it was something I wanted to do as a career. I love coaching because I love watching people achieve things they never thought they were capable of. I’ve coached at a few different CrossFit boxes since being certified and CrossFit Generation is different because we really focus on mastering the foundations. Every class at CFG there are people supporting you throughout your workout. Every CrossFit is different so finding the one that is right for you and fits your style is important. I coach the beginner classes as well as kids and teens and when teaching new athletes I always emphasize that practice makes perfect! So keep at it and don’t rush through the beginning learning phase.
I was born in Philadelphia, raised in Southhampton and moved back to the area once I graduated college. I live in Holland now with my boyfriend Derek and two dogs Brutus and Coco. When not working, you can find me at a beach! I love music – anything by Blink 182 and my favorite movie is “10 Things I Hate about You”
