I am a 2016 graduate of Greater Latrobe High School and am enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh Greensburg. I was raised in the City of Latrobe and engaged in many different sports and activities in my community throughout my childhood. In late 2012, I started CrossFit, which is a sport that I have greatly enjoyed and plan to participate in throughout my lifetime.
In the fall of 2017, I will attend the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus to study engineering. I have made the decision to study engineering because I am a visual learner who loves to understand how and why things work the way they do and how to make them more efficient. These aspects are very relevant to CrossFit, where understanding proper movements makes one a better athlete. After starting CrossFit, I have a great appreciation for nutrition and proper form because of the amazing change I have seen in myself. From my experience, I have learned that taking the time to understand how to properly eat and emphasize the technique of a movement has produced more efficacy than just showing up to the gym and powering through a workout
Since 2014, I have been an American Red Cross certified lifeguard and worked for Latrobe-GLSD Parks and Recreation. As a life guard, I strive to be a role model for the patrons of my facility while providing a safe swimming environment for everyone to enjoy. Also, I am a swim instructor for children who have no concept of how to swim, usually ranging from 6-months-old to 10-years-old. I like to break down the basics and assert technique to establish an understanding for my students of why there is a right and wrong way to swim, which are teaching skills that I will incorporate in coaching CrossFit.
