Esther grew up as an active kid with a gymnastics background, she also competed in all-star cheerleading, golf, lacrosse, swimming, and water polo. Naturally, her love of sports and her interest in medicine led her to earn a B.S. in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine and an M.S. in Medical Sciences/Pediatric Sports Medicine. She has worked in collegiate athletics and in the clinic working with world-class athletes to the elderly teaching rehabilitation exercises.
She was introduced to Olympic Weightlifting and Crossfit in 2011. Eventually, she joined her local Crossfit gym and started coaching classes in 2014. The community of people of all ages and fitness levels is truly what inspires Esther. She says there’s nothing more humbling when the 70-year-old next to you is giving their best effort and offering a sweaty high five and a huge smile after class. Esther strives to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable even if it's your very first class. Her background in sports medicine makes her focus on safety and quality of movement for each member. Esther jokes that she drank the Koolaid and she’s loving it!
