I started CrossFit in 2011 at Cynergy Crossfit in Hanson, MA. I have been a CrossFit Level 1 trainer since August of 2012, received my CrossFit Kids Certification in February of 2014 and my CrossFit Mobility Certification in March 2014. I have been teaching/coaching CrossFit since September of 2013
I was an avid softball player, playing competitively since age 12. I played college softball at Westfield State University where I studied Movement Science/Sports Medicine. I now coach softball at Walpole High School. I currently work for Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Patriot Place in Foxboro as a physical therapist assistant treating high level athletes, amputees, adults and pediatrics with orthopedic injuries, neurological and cardiopulmonary disease. I am currently continuing my education in Strength and Conditioning at Bridgewater State University.
My professional background allows me to have a unique approach to coaching involving recognizing movement dysfunction, correcting and promoting safe movement patterns to avoid athlete and injury and appropriate exercise progressions. I love integrating functional fitness into my practice, as well as education, awareness, and the benefits of CrossFit. In my spare time I like visiting Hawaii!

I grew up in Medfield, currently living in Walpole. I’m a graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and now I work in the Biotech Industry as a Facility Engineer. I have been crossfitting for over 6 years now, recently receiving my L1 trainers certification. My favorite movements are wall balls and handstand push-ups. I love a good long chipper because sprinting is so not my thing. In my spare time I spend a lot of my time with my 3 year old niece, reading (preferably on a beach) and I’m an active member of professional societies such as the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE) specifically the Women in Pharma group, Association of Facility Engineers, and Women in Bio.

I have always been an athletic person from cheerleading to basketball you name it I have done it. My passion was always cheerleading from High school to college to all stars I was always in some type of competitive environment. Once cheerleading was over i found myself running miles upon miles to try to fill my competitive nature with trying to keep myself “in shape” which at the time I thought it was trying to be skinny. My sister started Crossfit and told me it was exactly what I needed. I was hesitant at first but joined Crossfit Florian in June of 2014! This was exactly what I needed to stay competitive and push myself! This kept me coming back for more, but what kept me coming back every day was the sense of community and the friendships I have made from making this change in my life! I have learned “in shape” does not necessarily mean skinny it means strong! Crossfit has made me more confident not only at the gym but in life!

“I started CrossFit at the end of college through a weightlifting club at CrossFit 9 in St. Petersburg, FL and then joined CFF as a member in 2016. I am drawn to Crossfit because it provides community and a balance between strength and endurance. I also enjoy running and have competed in everything from local 5ks to the Boston Marathon. I currently work in e-commerce at NOBULL. In my free time I enjoy being outside with my dog, reading and photography.”
