Biography

I am currently a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham pursuing a degree in Civil Engineering which has always been a life time goal of mine, but I also have a very strong passion toward the sport of CrossFit. Growing up, I have always been involved in some sort of athletic activity whether it was riding bikes around town all day, hiking through the unexplored woods, or playing sports. I played football for a total of eleven years along with finding soccer in middle school and went on to play it for four years. It wasn’t until 2015 that I was introduced to CrossFit and I realized that it was a whole new level to fitness that I fell in love with. I have never felt such a greater effect on my physical and mental health until I found CrossFit. Just being with the community of great encouraging people makes everything in CrossFit so much different than any other thing I have ever experienced. Once I started coaching, I soon realized that it was something that I loved and had a passion to do. I love seeing people achieve goals that they never thought was possible and be able to apply it to an everyday lifestyle.
