I have always had a desire to play sports and participate in physical activity. I was continuously challenging myself to do better in whatever sport I played or activity I took part in. As I was growing up in West Chester, Pennsylvania, I played competitive roller hockey and worked my way through the little league baseball program. I also enjoyed intra-mural sports such as basketball and soccer. Even though I participated in several sports, my goal was to play football. When I moved to Scottsdale, Arizona I finally got the opportunity to fulfill that dream. I played fullback and linebacker on the high school football team for four years and achieved my varsity letter in my junior year and senior year. I also enjoyed working out and lifting weights with my teammates during the off-season. Physical fitness became my passion. I was honored to receive the ultimate football award my senior year which was the “Triple Crown” award that recognized – Academic Achievement, Leadership and Athletic Contribution. After high school, I attended Paradise Valley Community College and received my Associates Degree in Business Administration and Small Business Startup. I currently work full time in the mortgage department at Wells Fargo. I started with CrossFit in February of 2014. I immediately enjoyed working with the coaches and starting to focus again on physical fitness.
