Biography

Nicole was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida and moved to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2007. She was a competitive gymnast for 15 years until facing two back-to-back ACL injuries, forcing her to end her competitive career in college. She obtained a Biochemistry degree from NC State University and is currently working in the clinical research industry here in RTP.

After undergoing multiple surgeries and feeling tired of using “globo” gyms to keep herself in shape,
Nicole turned to CrossFit in 2012 after purchasing a Groupon. She instantly fell in love with the concept
and is here to stay for the long run.

As a former gymnast, Nicole’s favorite part about CrossFit is that it
allows her to utilize her former skills during workouts while also maintaining her health… WIN, WIN! As
a coach, Nicole loves to show her athletes just how much their bodies are capable of and to encourage
them to step outside of their comfort zones. When not in the gym, Nicole loves to attend music festivals,
travel to cities close to a beach, and explore local coffee shops.
