I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Exercise Science from George Mason University.  My past working experiences include working as a Personal Trainer at Marine Base Quantico, running a small community gym as a Lifestyle Director, and practical knowledge of working in a physical therapy clinic as an Exercise Specialist. I started training at CrossFit West Springfield in 2014 and began leading classes there in 2015. I enjoy helping individuals achieve their fitness goals and overcome any personal obstacles. I am passionate about educating individuals on proper exercise techniques and making sure they understand the key to their physical success. I currently compete in small local Crossfit competitions just for fun. Outside of the gym I love spending time with family and friends, as well as with my four legged family member Dexter.
