About Coach

I have always found tremendous purpose and joy in being active and adventurous. As a kid, that meant playing five sports and filling all my time with training and practice. I was fortunate enough to pursue that passion of health and fitness beyond high school and earn degrees in exercise science and biomechanics. While in college I discovered CrossFit and the sport of fitness, which exposed me to the most supportive and empowering communities I have ever known. First in Manhattan, and now here in Prairie Village, Kansas. Upon graduating from KU Med in 2023, my goal is to continue to serve the amazing athletes I work with not only as a coach, but also as a performance physical therapist.

Turning Point

As an 18-year-old out on my own for the first time in college, I was introduced to CrossFit at my University’s box. The structure, accountability, daily motivation, and competitive atmosphere that I experienced at that gym taught me more about myself than I’d ever known before. I realized that my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health were absolute necessities for longevity and fulfillment in my life.

Motivation & Passion

I have seen how the pursuit of fitness and health has drastically changed the lives of so many. Becoming a better friend, spouse, parent, co-worker. Being accountable and responsible for the few things we get to control in our lives. It is my mission to be a guide for all who want to experience that for themselves.
