About me: I’ve been coaching people as long as I can remember. I began my affair with teaching as an Ellis certified swim instructor teaching children how to swim. In 2008 I started CrossFit via by 2010 I attained my CrossFit level 1 certification and have been coaching CrossFit ever since. I have a love for helping people move, feel, and live better.

In 2012 I moved to New Orleans and opened Crescent City Crossfit Gretna. 6 months later I opened Crescent City CrossFit Elmwood. My mission is to spread CrossFit’s teachings and methodologies to as many people as I can.

In 2015 I Co-Founded our CōR (community outreach) program to reach a broader audience for our trainers and allow people to take part in a healthier lifestyle with no monetary investment.

In 2016 I was selected as a Lululemon ambassador for their Canal Place store. I hope to utilize their broad range of development resources to sharpen my coaching and business skills.

One specialty I’ve developed over years of teaching fitness is helping ages 40+ with pre-existing physical ailments attain a better physical and mental quality of life through functional movement and healthy nutrition. It’s never too late to make positive changes in your life. I hope to focus more on this sector of our clientele in the future.
