I was born and raised just south of San Francisco and grew up swimming competitively. I discovered water polo in high school and was offered the chance to play at university, which is where I was introduced to weightlifting. CrossFit magically appeared in my life after I graduated in 2010 and I decided to get my Level 1 a couple of years after that. I was coaching at my home box (CrossFit Cadence (http://www.crossfitcadence.com/)) before I moved to London last summer for work . I absolutely love it here and am eternally grateful for everyone at Perpetua who’s helped make this new city feel like home.
 Outside of CrossFit I work for Google on our University Programs team. I travel quite a bit for work to visit universities across Europe to speak with students about our internship and full-time job opportunities. Fun fact: Whenever I travel I pick my hotel based on which box I want to visit. I keep a running spreadsheet where I write reviews of each. I’m at 33 so far
