am a 28-year-old north New Jersey native and started my CrossFit journey in May 2016 after relocating to Pasadena, California for work. After only ever living on the East Coast, I began searching for a new, challenging sport that would also provide me with the sense of community that I was missing. I quickly became hooked on the competitive atmosphere, varied workouts and camaraderie. After just five months, I am generally less stressed, my self-confidence has improved, and I have pushed my body further than I thought possible. I intend to continue CrossFit as long as my body allows.
Growing up, I was very active and involved in competitive sports. I later earned my BA in Economics from Stony Brook University and my MBA with a Marketing concentration from Tampa University. I have since moved back to New Jersey.
