Tell us a little bit about yourself (where are you from, job, family, etc.).

I was raised in PA, moved to NJ almost 20 years ago, have two kids (9 & 11), and develop oral care products for a living.  I have been involved in sports/athletics all my life. I grew up playing rec league town sports, organized high school sports and ran cross country and indoor and outdoor track through college. I stayed active after school by running marathons and half marathons. 


How did you hear about CrossFit? Why did you want to try it?

After having my two kids, I didn’t have the time to keep training for long distance races so I started focusing on HIIT type workouts in my basement until my neighbor, Meera Chhedi, told me to join CrossFit so I did. 


What were your thoughts after your first workout at CrossFit Stealth?

I was really intimidated by my first CrossFit class. Honestly, I almost walked out but Meera was present so I felt like I couldn’t leave.  I am so glad I stayed.  I left after class feeling challenged and hungry for more. 


What is your favorite thing about CrossFit Stealth?

I love the supportive team atmosphere CrossFit creates.  I love the varied movements and focus on function rather than aesthetics.  And I absolutely love how CrossFit continuously pushes both my physical and mental limits. I also greatly appreciate that Steath has a 5:30 am class that tolerates my energy that early in the morning. 


How has CrossFit impacted other areas of your life outside of the gym?

CrossFit has helped me feel more comfortable and confident in my own skin.  It has helped me cope with the stress of supporting aging parents while parenting my own children.  Most importantly, CrossFit has helped me to unashamedly take up space. 


Something you might not know about me is?

Outside of CrossFit, I like reading, crafting, and vacationing. My favorite vacations are our yearly family hiking trips around the world.
