I grew up in the outskirts of Scranton, PA, where I spent most of my childhood and teenage years playing softball. I started lifting weights to complement my softball training around the time I was 14 years old. Even then, I loved the barbell and hated cardio. After graduating HS, I went on to study Chemistry and play softball at Western Connecticut State University. Neither endeavor lasted long, and I finished my college career back home at Marywood University, with a degree in English, but no softball accolades to speak of.
In 2016, for Mothers' Day, my family gifted me the On Ramp program at my first CrossFit box. I was immediately hooked! I had been away from exercise for a long while, but It didn't take long until I started to feel strong again, and I never wanted to lose that feeling again.
I love working with potential new athletes at PXM because it gives me the chance to share my passion for this community with others. Yes, CrossFit (in general) and PXM (specifically) have given me the opportunity to lead a more healthful life, but they have also given me an extended family of folks who care for each other in the best ways. That feeling is one that everyone should know, and I love being able to introduce others to it.
