My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

Growing up I played every sport I could find. From age 12 to 16 I was a competitive gymnast. In high school I played on my school's varsity soccer and lacrosse teams. After college I picked up long distance running, and I completed 3 marathons and dozens of shorter races before discovering CrossFit in 2009.

I started CrossFit in May 2009 at CrossFit KOP, and started coaching in October 2009. In August 2011 John and I opened Iron Cross Athletics, Home of CrossFit Phoenixville. We currently train about 100 athletes there, and we couldn't be more proud of our community!
