Mandy found her love for sports at the age of 12 when she joined her first competitive U-16 soccer team. With the help of an extremely supportive family, including a full-time Dad/Coach, she earned a full scholarship to play soccer at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL. As a four-year starter, she competed in the National Tournament 3 times and served as captain her junior and senior years. After graduating with a BS in Air Traffic Management, she took a job at a local gym to continue being surrounded by fitness. It was there she fell in love with the energy of group classes and began interning as a personal trainer/group instructor. She gained 2 years of hands-on experience from a certified CHEK practitioner who put a lot of emphasis on functional fitness and nutrition.
Hungry for the next level of intensity, Mandy found Crossfit in the summer of 2013. Before moving to CT in March of this year, she has gained experience from multiple boxes in FL including her most recent position as Head Coach and Programmer for Crossfit BearCat in Palm Coast, FL. She has attained her NASM Personal Training, CF Level 1, USAW Sports Performance and AFPA Holistic Nutritionist Credentials.
“I have always tried to intertwine both physical activity and nutrition to help others live fuller lives. I look forward to learning from the incredible staff here at CFM and providing another resource for a holistic lifestyle.”
