I grew up in Connecticut, playing sports since I could walk. I’ve played basketball, volleyball, track & field, lacrosse, soccer and swimming and always knew I loved anything involving the body, health, and fitness. I went to school at Lynchburg College where I got a degree in Exercise Physiology. I now live in Newport News, VA where I am the Head Coach of Crossfit Oyster Point. I have been competing in Crossfit since 2013 and started in the sport because I was looking for a new, fun, competitive environment to work out in after making the decision to not play Volleyball in college. Throughout the years I have competed at multiple local competitions as well as National competitions. I placed 3rd in the Pro Division at the Richmond Superfit Games, was on a 2016 Crossfit Atlantic Regionals team and a 2017 Granite Games Pro Team of 3. Along with coaching group classes and personal training I am also a Nutrition Coach. I love helping people reach their full health and fitness potential inside and outside the gym. Over the years I have learned and discovered that the 1 hour in the gym is important but the additional 23 hours of your movement, your fuel and your recovery are even more important! That’s why I love the Purus Labs products, because they help you really maximize on your time that you’re in the gym but also have great products to address how your body is recovering outside of training!
My Top 3:
Everyday Amino - (Cucumber lime OR Strawberry Lemonade…can’t pick a favorite!) taken daily, usually twice in a day!
Condense - (Tropical Island Punch is the current favorite but I also love Juicy Florida Orange, Melonberry Cooler and Fresh Sliced Pineapple!).
MyoFeed - helps me refuel and recover every day as I hop from my training session into a coaching session (I’ve never liked vanilla protein powders but the Vanilla PB2Ⓡ is my favorite)!
