Meet Your Coaches
In high school, I cheered competitively and also worked with the girls weightlifting team just for fun. I am now a graduate of UNF with a major in Sport Management and a minor in Professional Education. As much as I enjoy sports and athletics, I am equally passionate about helping others and teaching them how to better themselves. There is really nothing more exciting than seeing yourself and others reach physical and mental goals by bettering themselves through health and fitness. The community here at BlackFin is more like a family, and the relationships I have gained through this gym are no doubt, lifelong.
When I was 17 years old, I became extremely fascinated with movement and the human body. How we breathe, adapt, bend, snap back, produce force, twist, all of it! I felt trapped in my body and these concepts showed that we could be free. Fast Forward to May 2017, I walked into my first CrossFit Gym out at Jax Beach. From lacrosse, I was familiar with all of the major lifts and had developed a fair bit of flexibility through the yoga I had been doing. I went through the on ramps and began joining classes. After a few months, I decided to get my CF L1. Since then, I have received USAW L1, CFL2, and my BS in Mechanical engineering degree from UNF.
My goal as a coach is to help people feel better, move better, and have better lives in the bodies that they live in.
I was introduced to CrossFit while doing security contracting in Afghanistan, supporting the US Governments War on Terror and Operation Enduring Freedom. CrossFit allowed me to reach a level of physical fitness that enabled me to meet the challenges of another physically demanding job.
I attained my Level I Trainer qualification in September of 2012 and consider myself very fortunate to be one of the coaches at BlackFin CrossFit.
