I studied Interventional Radiology at UVA, graduated in 2012, and then moved to Fairfax where I’ve been a Radiologic Technologist ever since. I just felt like I was missing something in my life, and decided to try some group classes and became extremely addicted to exercise almost immediately. Shortly thereafter, I started lifting weights independently and prepping for body building competitions (bikini division). After several bikini competitions, I realized that I no longer felt healthy, was run down and malnourished. After I got back in check and learned more about performance-based dieting, I realized that I was bored and lacked motivation now that I didn’t have that goal of being on stage anymore. I joined CrossFit with my husband (Nick) and we knew we were where we belonged almost instantly. I am CrossFit L1 certified, and am also currently studying to get a Precision Nutrition Certification. This year, I’m attending a course with the Nutritional Coaching Institute to become a specialist in Macronutrient style dieting.
