About Coach

Born and mostly raised in the Denver area, I began CrossFit in 2014 and was hooked ever since. I played every sport that fit into my schedule growing up and played Division I Lacrosse at UC Berkeley. I am currently a medical student at CU and love to start my day with the amazing 6 am crew. CrossFit gives me the physical push, mental challenge, and community that I deeply miss from team sports. When I'm not in the gym, I love to run, ski, swim, spend time with my family and dogs, and eat lots and lots of food.

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

I would not be where I am today without incredible coaches who believed in me and pushed me to be the best version of myself. I hope to be able to do the same for those I coach, whether it's learning a squat, getting your first ring muscle up, or doing something you never thought you could. At the end of the day, I hope that the skills practiced in the gym are more than a deadlift PR or a fast 5k time - they're habits that allow you to fully connect with the place you are in and the people you love most.
