 I am an educator by training and by passion.  I am always excited to help others learn, grow and succeed.  I started coaching in April 2013 in Doha, Qatar and helped develop the first CrossFit gym in the small country, since then I have coached either full or part-time.  CrossFit enables me to teach individuals the confidence and skills needed to prepare them for all aspects for life.  I focus first and foremost on proper form, and techniques to develop the abilities to be a strong and healthy athlete! I love watching athletes have that “ah ha!” moment when they figure out how to get out of the hole for their 1RM back squat or link their first two kipping pull-ups together.
