I have been in the Fitness industry for over ten years.  I've tried many types of classes.  Carrie Marquardt asked me to try a CrossFit class. The first time I ever tried CrossFit, I completely fell in love with it.  I wanted the average person like myself to eat, train and feel like an athlete.  I first started teaching small group CrossFit Kettlebell classes at the racquetball court at the Meriden YMCA.  My classes were growing tremendously and we were outgrowing that space.  I spoke to my director about becoming affiliated with CrossFit in order for our members to be exposed to the CrossFit world.  This is how CrossFit Meriden was born, and we're still going strong and we're growing each and every day.


I hope to create a safe and encouraging atmosphere where all of my athletes regardless of their ability get a great workout each time they enter into the box.  I want to help my athletes achieve their fitness goals, and encourage them to do their personal best during each class.  

Personal motto: I want to inspire people.  I want someone to look at me and say because of you I didn't give up.
