Biography

I walked into my first CrossFit Box in early 2013, I had just moved and was looking to meet new people and get in shape! I grew up playing all kinds of sports and parlayed that into college tennis.

I always thought I was in relatively good shape but then came CrossFit. I don’t remember what my first work out was but it was definitely humbling. I could barely walk the next day but showed up to class and have been hooked since.

My favorite part about CrossFit is the community. We workout together, encourage one another and finish together no matter what the WOD. Every movement is scaleable and can provide great fitness to everyone. All it takes is the willingness to give it a try, and once you do, you’ll gain a new respect for what your body can do.

Outside of the CrossFit world, I am a medical student at Albany Medical College. What drew me to medicine is the same thing that brings me to coaching. I love working with people and helping them get better(health and fitness go hand in hand!!!!!)

My goal at CrossFit Shatter is to help you be the best athlete you can be, whether it’s getting that one unassisted pull-up or snatching twice your body weight! I am always willing to listen, give a suggestion or learn from you!
