Beginning both Irish and Scottish dance at the age of 5, I immediately fell in love with the movement, dedication, and hard work it took to actively compete and perform in the dance world. After being ranked 5th in the East for multiple years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012), I decided to make a pivot and try my hand at teaching dance. I became a teacher at the age of 15, and have been actively teaching ever since. <br /> <br /> Aside from my dance career, I also played volleyball all throughout middle and high school. Let's just say...that didn't go as well as my dance career did. <br /> <br /> Aside
After "retiring" from competitive dance in 2012, I almost instantly felt like I had lost a piece of myself. I no longer had competitions to work toward, things to work on, or critiques to conquer. After years of searching for something to fill that void, I had my first workout at CrossFit Aevitas in 2018. That first workout sparked the want and need to be better, move faster, and compete against the old version of myself. Since that day, I've never left!
It truly fills my cup to watch athletes get stronger both physically and mentally throughout their fitness journies. I am the best (and worst ;)) part of their days --- which is what gets me out of bed every morning. I love seeing the excitement an athlete has when they hit a PR, or doing something they thought they couldn't do. Being a coach is truly a dream job, and I'm thankful I get to live my dream every single day at Aevitas!
