Kirsten found CrossFit in 2016 and has been a member of SVG since they opened in 2018. What she loves most about CrossFit is that there is something for everyone. As a coach, Kirsten likes to meet people where they are at, but also push them to be the best that they can be on that day.
Kirsten is a professional Firefighter/EMT in Chicopee, MA. She is also an instructor at the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy. She has found that being a well-rounded athlete translates well to the physical demands of her job. School is what brought Kirsten to the area from Connecticut. She was recruited to the rowing team at Mount Holyoke College, where she studied Psychology. She also conducted an independent study for her minor, titled “Education and Sport”. She then went on to earn her MBA from UMASS Amherst before working in Healthcare Administration for some time.
Kirsten has been active her entire life, participating in a variety of sports from grade school up through college. She also loves being a dog mom to her four babies - Ellie, Beca, Taco, and Larry.
