"Work hard. Be humble."
Julia is a rare native of the DMV, having grown up in Greenbelt MD. In addition to hanging out in her hometown, she enjoys eating Oreos (double stuff only) and hanging out with her family, James the Man and Stella the Cat.
She has dabbled in many sports, from swimming as a kid to rock climbing, trail running, and Kung Fu later on. But she finally found a sport that encompassed it all with CrossFit a little over three years ago, which she loves because of the variety of the workouts and all the interesting and wonderful people she’s gotten to know.
When not wrangling high schoolers in her day job as a teacher, she can be found coaching Cross Fit Classes at Foggy Bottom, where she also works out! She loves battling barbells and her own body weight into handstands, snatches, cleans, and muscle ups. Her favorite part of Cross fit is that it never gets easy, there’s always new skills to work on and ways to be better.
