About Coach

I started CrossFit when I was 15 years old. It helped me not only with the school sports I did at the time but also with my mental health. I just graduated from the University of Toledo with my BSN and plan to continue my dream of becoming a NICU nurse. I have been a part of the Glass City CrossFit community since 2019 when I moved to Toledo for college and they quickly became my family!!

Turning Point

I, like many other teenage girls, went through a very difficult time during high school and did not see any value in myself. Joining a CrossFit Gym made me realize how strong I really was both mentally and physically. The community aspect is like no other and whether you are the first to finish, or the last everyone is always rooting for you to be the best you can be.

Motivation & Passion

I coach so that I can help others see the value in themselves much as my coaches did for me. Helping people go from doubting themselves to saying "I can do this" no matter the task is something I aspire to do as a coach.
