Born and raised in Alajuela, Costa Rica. I made my way to the United States in July 2020. While living in New Jersey, I completed a Master's in Education and started teaching High School in Newark, NJ. I was introduced to CrossFit by my friends in NJ but never joined because I thought it was too intense for me and people would force me to do more than I was capable of. I moved to Florida in 2016, where I started doing CrossFit. after meeting some people who did CrossFit and still looked "normal". I fell in love with the sport right away. Fast forward to 2019 when I quit my teaching career to pursue a full-time coaching career, it was the best decision I have made. I love working with people and helping them achieve their goals.
