About Coach

I have been doing CrossFit since 2017. I began teaching Group exercises in 2005, and I love being able to make a difference in people’s lives.

I have served as the CEO of Asnuntuck Community for 3 years. Before this position, I was the Academic Dean and a Professor of Biology. I specialize in Genetics, General Biology, and Microbiology. I have 2 Master's degrees — an MBA and MS in Biology. In 2020, I completed my EdD in Higher Education Leadership. I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1998, and I have two children, James and Elizabeth.
