About Coach

Unlike many of the Level MMA coaches I do not have a history of martial arts. I grew up in a neighborhood full of boys, so the closest I got was scrambling for the last piece of pizza or hopping over them for the best bus seat. To be honest, I jumped into this having no idea what I was getting into, but looking back I’m so grateful that I did. I love the physical and mental challenge that comes with every new class. Helping build a space specifically for women to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) at Level MMA has been beyond rewarding. Each class is filled with laughter, and I enjoy every minute. It’s amazing watching someone develop a passion for the sport, especially when you are able to help them along that journey. My goal is to make everyone feel they can enjoy BJJ at a level and intensity that is comfortable for them. When I’m not at the gym, most of my time is spent with my family. We like to be involved in the community and trying new things. You may also catch me in your local schools, as a part-time Speech-Language Pathologist.
