Before I found CrossFit I was always an athlete. I was a figure skater for most of my life, finishing my 15 year skating career in 2007 with a national championship and a 4th place finish at the world championships as a member of the US National Synchronized Figure Skating team. After figure skating I entered the world of endurance racing, including a handful olympic distance triathlons, a half Ironman triathlon, and 9 marathons. I tried CrossFit for the first time, after much persuading from friends, almost 6 years ago and instantly fell in love with the sport after my first workout. I qualified and competed at regionals in 2014 in the team competition. My first gym was Reebok CrossFit St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. I completed a coaching internship at this gym, learned to coach, and eventually took over as head coach in 2016. I moved back to the area in September of 2017. I have been friends with Matt through the fitness community for years and was lucky enough to come on board as a coach. I have felt incredibly welcomed into the EverProven community and it quickly started to feel like home.
