“Likes to throw flat round objects and lift heavyish things”.

I have always been involved in fitness throughout my life. I started playing and coaching basketball when I was young, which changed to Ultimate Frisbee after high school. Since then, I have been competing on the National stage as a Player Coach/ Captain for Maverick, KW’s competitive open team.                                                           

My journey into weight training came after a knee injury prevented  me from playing. I used it to assist my recovery, and accelerate my return to sport. The weight training quickly became sport specific training, and eventually evolved into CrossFit. When I found CrossFit, I was all in and haven’t looked back. I went through CrossFit Kitchener’s Apprenticeship Program before obtaining my CrossFit Level 1.

When I’m not at the gym coaching or working out, I work as a Registered Massage Therapist and Full Body Active Release Technique Provider at Dearborn Health in Waterloo. I utilize my knowledge of anatomy and body mechanics to assist me in focusing on movement quality and promoting proper patterns with all athletes.
