The first time I stepped through the front door of Southie Green I had a nervous excitement in my stomach. The sun wasn’t even up, yet there was a huge mass of people gathered near the rig excitedly chatting before class. And it was so strange. Suddenly I felt comfortable; the nerves disappeared and it was the strangest feeling… I felt home. And it has truly remained this way ever since. I’m home.

The time I can spend within the walls (or currently in the parking lot of) CFS are truly the best hours of my day. When I workout it’s an outlet for my stress, a place for me to improve with no judgment from others, and a space for me to achieve athletic accomplishments I never thought possible. And when I coach it’s my opportunity to help create that same environment for someone else. I want to play a role in making the time others spend here at CFS the best hours of their day. I want to help people realize that they are capable of so much more than they think – whether it’s doing their first official WOD, getting their first strict pull up, or PRing a lift.

Any advice for Newbies and/or Veterans?

Newbies: Try not to compare yourself to others and never, ever feel bad about scaling! Everybody starts somewhere; you’re not expected to come into this sport a perfect athlete. That’s the fun of CrossFit! You ALWAYS have something to work on. Even the best athletes have weaknesses, and it’s easy to focus on these and our flaws. But focus on what you can do and celebrate your wins!

Fun fact most people don’t know about you

I thought I wanted to be a producer and tried working on a tv set but couldn’t hang with the crew working from 10am to 4am. Ya girl likes to sleep.

What do you enjoy most about the CrossFit community?

I get to fitness with my friends, and anyone I work out with is instantly considered a friend! We build each other up, cheer each other on, and are there for each other always
