Steph was first introduced to CrossFit in Sydney, Australia in 2014 by accident. Having never done a pull up or lifted a single weight before, she was instantly drawn to the challenging but inspiring atmosphere that CrossFit provided. Having grown up with constant criticisms about her body and being told that women aren’t allowed to be strong and that women shouldn’t lift weights, CrossFit helped build the confidence she needed to know that anyone can be strong as long as you believe you are
Steph has always been fascinated by movement and the human body. She pursued a Bachelor’s and Masters degrees in Immunology and Infectious Diseases but upon returning back to NYC in 2017, she was looking for a new change. She left her career in science and made the switch into coaching and since then has focused on helping other people become not only physically stronger, but to help strengthen their mindset so that they have the confidence the need to reach their utmost potential.
Steph currently holds CrossFit-L1, Precision Nutrition-1, NASM-CPT, and Pain Free Performance Specialist certifications. She is currently working towards a behavior change specialization and NLP certification.
