I grew up in Woodside, CA, where I played team sports through school and competed in equestrian show jumping. I was introduced to CrossFit shortly after moving to Boston in 2010 to pursue a Master's degree in theology. In addition to being enthused by my own athletic progress, I came to appreciate CrossFit's capacity for helping people push past their perceived limitations, and wanted to be in a position to help facilitate that process for others. The OPEX coaching certification has allowed me to integrate my athletic and academic tendencies, and I loves using both to help members grow in fitness and understanding. Health and well-being reach far beyond the physical, and I love connecting with our members to help them live balanced, authentic lives both in and out of the gym.
