Fashion school to full-time fitness doesn’t seem traditional but it’s part of my story. Before fashion school, I grew up in a house full of athletes and a football coach as a father, playing almost every sport. Playing sports aided in my foundational work for determination, hustle, and a don’t-quit mindset which enabled me to never back down from any challenge.
After working in fashion, I moved from New York to Boston. Fitness was my way of meeting people in a city where I knew absolutely no one. Fast forward and after five years of teaching fitness as a side gig, I quit my corporate job and made it my full-time career. I have experience in strength, cycling, pilates, and now row!
“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are”
What give you Strength? My family, My Partner, Patrick, and my two dogs, Darla & Roscoe!
Music Style? A mix of Deep House, Hip Hop, Trap, & Alternative Rock
Dream republic studios location? Amalfi Coast
Favorite strength movement? Push-ups. Not usually a fan-favorite, but it is mine. :)
Guilty pleasure? Tony & Elaine’s Chicken Parm & Schitt’s Creek
Celebrity you would love to have take your class? Gal Gadot, MY GIRL CRUSH
At home or in studio? There’s nothing like the energy and camaraderie in studio!
My hope is that people connect with the sport like Joey and I did, and that Row Republic becomes more than a workout—but a community.
