I was born in Quebec, Canada, but I have been in the states most of my life (Oui! Je parles français!). I did several sports growing up from gymnastics, to swimming, to cross country, and track. Swimming was by far my favorite and the one I did the longest! I have been doing CrossFit for 12 years and the first few years I was very focused on competing. I competed at Regionals on a team for 5 consecutive years and I qualified for the CrossFit Games on a team 3 years as well. The accomplishment I am most proud of was qualifying a team from our gym, CrossFit Dwala.
Outside of competing, my other passion has always been helping others gain strength and confidence both physically and mentally. CrossFit has done so much for me and my own self confidence both inside and outside the gym. Growing up, I was self conscious about the way I looked and never felt like I truly fit in anywhere. Through CrossFit, I transformed how I saw myself and I found a community that was so incredibly accepting.
My purpose for coaching and managing Dwala is to help as many people as I can have the same life transformation that I had! From being confident in my clothes, to being proud of my strength, and having a community that provides acceptance, support, and friendship is something everyone should get to experience in their life.
