Co-Owner/Office Manager


Springfield, MA



My greatest accomplishment is being a mother to two amazing children, J.R. & Samuel. Although not currently practicing, I have my MS in Psychological Services and Counseling with a focus on Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling from Salem State University. I also received my BA in Psychology from Saint Anselm College.

Athletic Background:

Soccer.  I also grew up behind a boat water skiing.

How did you get here?

Bribery. Steve and the boys had been attending CrossFit Five Plus for some time and wanted me to join. To do so, Steve made a deal that if I attended CF 5+ for a month, attending at least 3 classes per week, he would buy me new furniture. Not surprisingly, I now have new furniture and have been at Five Plus ever since.

What is your favorite movement:


What is your Goat (least favorite):

Overhead squats…..or anything overhead for that matter.

What is your PLUS?

I consider myself to be a people person.  I believe that it is only through fostering our relationships with others that we can truly make meaning in our lives.

Why are you excited to be a part of this?

Growth.  I am very excited to learn from our community how we can best serve our members to make this gym an even better place than it already is.  Like Steve said, there is so much potential to work with and with all the support and encouragement we have already received from our community, I know that anything is possible.



Favorite Quote:

I do not have a favorite quote, but there are two words that are very important to me; persevere & persist.



Favorite Cartoon:

Gummy Bears…..throw back!

Favorite Movie:

Better Off Dead.

Favorite Book:

Love Warrior.


Favorite Beer:

Not a beer drinker…..but I love a good glass of white wine.  Whitehaven is my favorite!
