Level 2 CrossFit Coach, National Level Olympic Weightlifter
I was born and raised in Baltimore, and moved into the city after returning from the College of Charleston for undergrad back in 2009. I live and work in Fells Point at Brown Advisory in Bond Street Wharf. I fell in love with CrossFit after the original CFHE opened at the corner of Thames and Caroline just outside of my office. I was your typical CF addict in the beginning, lived and breathed it in an all-consuming kind of way. I was eager to learn and be able to do more so I found myself in a Level 1 class in 2013. After a few years of trying to be a competitive crossfitter, I realized my strengths were in strength (ha!) and decided to give an Olympic lifting program a go. Since 2017 I’ve focused most of my training on barbell work but trying to squeeze a WOD in here and there to maintain my conditioning and my gymnastics skills. We can’t do it all, but that’s the beauty of CrossFit, it’s a melting pot of sport, and enables my training to ebb and flow as life ever changes.
