Head Coach Fort Lauderdale
Michelle’s athletic career began at a young age, playing soccer and tennis, until it truly took off in college when she joined the Rutgers University Sailing Team. From then on, her love for the water and competition drove her passion for fitness. She discovered CrossFit in 2016 when she wanted to step her game up as a competitive sailboat racer, and has been hooked ever since. She is proud of her many accomplishments on the water, including the titles of 2017 Swan 42 National Champion, 2018 J109 North American Corinthian Champion, and placing 3rd in her division in the 2018 Newport to Bermuda Race.
Michelle spent the last 8 years working in Finance in New York City, and has recently transitioned her career fully to the realm of health and wellness, currently working on her Masters in Mental Health Counseling at Northwestern University. In addition, she is a certified USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, NASM Certified Personal Trainer & Weight Loss Specialist, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
