Growing up, I was very athletic and blessed with having the natural ability to compete in a variety of sports. I participated in baseball, basketball, soccer, diving, track & field, cross country and 8 on 8 flag football. My fitness experience started at the age of 19, at a local 24 hour globo gym. After more than 5 years there, I studied and became an NSCA-CPT Certified Personal Trainer.

Towards the end of 2011, I discovered CrossFit on YouTube. I began mixing CrossFit in with my strength micros and working on building my engine and form. In January of 2012, I became a CrossFit Level 1 Certificate holder. I switched from mirrors and muscle size to the 3 modalities of CrossFit (weightlifting, gymnastics, metabolic conditioning) and began coaching others using these modalities and implementing them into my own training. Just over a year later, I noticed a plateau or possibly even a loss in my previous strength.

I looked to the community of CrossFit and started training at other boxes, including Steel Caliber, LBC, Rage, Explode and South Mountain. It was here I learned that “Anyone can make you tired, but not everyone can make you better.” I got better, period. I continued to train with athletes who were more advanced and who pushed me to work on my “goats.” I most frequently worked with Kurt Miller from SMCF. We ranked 13th out of over 2000 affiliates in the Mid-Atlantic Region, which qualified us for regionals.

I have obtained so much through CrossFit, and it has changed the way I live and train other people. My goal is to create excellence within every person’s inner athlete who steps onto our floor, and to make a profound impact on YOUR life.

From a very young age I was always involved in team sports, eventually focusing on field hockey and softball. After graduating college, I really missed being part of a team and the sense of community that it provided. Fast forward a few years and I had just had my second son. I was feeling down about my new and unwelcome “mom bod” and was looking for a way to lose weight, get healthy, and to regain a focus on myself. I was introduced to CrossFit in 2014 and immediately fell in love with it! While it was pretty intimidating to walk into the gym for the very first time, I quickly found a group of people who were welcoming, supportive, and best of all, held me accountable. I was fortunate enough to work with some amazing coaches at CrossFit Threefold who enabled me to workout throughout my third pregnancy; actually my last prenatal workout was one day before delivering my third son! As soon as I was cleared to return, I was right back in the gym working everyday to try and get back to where I was before being pregnant. However, I wasn’t seeing the results that I was hoping for and some days it felt like kids, family, and life just took over. It wasn’t until I really focused in on my nutrition AND working out consistently that I started to see real results. In total I lost 60 pounds (check out my before and after pic!) and never felt better…I have more energy than ever before, tasks of daily living (especially with 3 very active little boys) are much easier, and I feel good about myself! CrossFit and my CrossFit Threefold “family” changed my life and now as a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer I feel inspired to help others in the same way!

Outside of personal training, the majority of my coaching at CrossFit Threefold is with the Youth/Kids classes. My past experiences in athletics include playing football for ten years, baseball for nine years, and volleyball for seven years. Previous accolades I have acquired through sports include being a two time district and league volleyball champion, a former Coordinated Health Athlete of the Week Scholarship recipient, Captain of the Emmaus Men’s Volleyball Team, and the first player to receive a scholarship from Chatham University to play Volleyball during their first year of being a D-III program. During my Freshman year of high school athletics, I dislocated my right knee. This injury started a trend towards my athletic success and my future career in athletic/personal training. After my injury, I dedicated myself to being the best athlete I could be off the court through training with the head lifting coach at Lehigh University throughout the rest of my high school career. Not only was I able to attain power and speed through working at Lehigh, I was able to transfer those aspects, and more, into my skill on the court. I can say with 100% confidence that I would not have been more than an average player if it was not for my trainer, Eric. Because of him I was able to travel the country while playing club volleyball at the national level and even had a chance to play internationally. Since I have retired from being a volleyball athlete, I have pursued a Kinesiology Degree- exercise science emphasis from Penn State Berks. There I found a true passion for physical therapy, biomechanics, sports psychology and anatomy
