Why did you want to become a CrossFit coach?
Following a few years as a CFNH athlete I began to realize that I had something more to offer and started the road to coaching, first with the CrossFit Kids Classes, then the regular classes, and now Olympic Weightlifting as well. I am truly grateful to be part of such an incredible community of support and love. Joining CFNH has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my 30+ years of life. Our athletes have become my home and family away from home. There is some kind of magic that happens when you mix sweat, love, clanging barbells, and loud music together with an awesome group of like-minded people.

Favorite part about being a coach at CrossFit New Haven:
I LOVE coaching! It’s a rare opportunity to help people truly discover their potential and passion through fitness, and then see them thrive, and grow, and become more confident. My favorite coaching moments are when an athlete has that “ah-ha” moment during a lift when the timing, adjustments, and components of the movement sync up to make the perfect lift – the one you’ve been telling them would come with patience and perfect practice – and suddenly the gates are open and this athlete has become a weightlifting machine!
