I came to CrossFit Delaware Valley in 2011, after hearing that the workouts I had been doing with a personal trainer "sounded like CrossFit." I searched for a local box and found my home away from home. The incredible people, workouts, and drive to be better are what have kept me coming back for almost 10 years! I love helping people to get moving, move better, and feel good about their efforts. Goal setting is an incredible motivator and working with other athletes to attain and surpass those goals is so rewarding. The class atmosphere and friendly competitive spirit can't be found at any other gym. I'm currently a stay-at-home mom for 2 daughters in elementary school who love soccer and gymnastics, and my husband has a history of interesting hobbies including autocross, woodworking, and ultra-running, and has recently gotten into lifting. My athletic background is mostly in swimming: I started in sixth grade and continued competitively through my senior year of college. Some other intramurals were scattered along the way, and I mostly stayed active on my own. My professional background is in nursing: I worked in Hahnemann's medical ICU for 4 years, and then home care nursing until my second daughter was born. For fun outside of the gym, I have old-lady hobbies like crochet and gardening. We also like to go on family hikes and just spending time outdoors.
