I am passionate about fitness, community, redefining body image, and helping others find their own empowerment and confidence (especially women!). I have returned back to my beloved hometown of Austin after having lived in NYC, Atlanta, Kenya, Los Angeles, Oakland, and most recently, Maui, HI. Before being a full time fitness coach, I worked as a community organizer, a health educator, and a research analyst. Coaching CrossFit has taught me many important lessons, one of which is that interpersonal connectedness is just as important to overall health as physical fitness. I am grateful to have been so readily welcomed into the UpReach community!
