Kathleen or better known as Kat is the Assistant Director of the Self-Direction Department through the Resource Center for Independent Living. She has worked for the Not-For-Profit for the last 13 years assisting individuals with developmental disabilities live their lives to the fullest. Kat has been a member of MVW since the winter of 2017. She grew up in New Berlin, NY and settled in the CNY area and started a family in 2004. She has always been an avid athlete competing in soccer and softball all throughout high school and college. After graduating from college and settling down, she started running and participating in HITT classes to fill the void of competitive sports. When she found CrossFit, she knew that this was where her love for fitness and competition would thrive. She has a passion for helping others and pushing them to be the best they can be through fitness and transcending themselves. Assisting others grow and succeed is something she strives to deliver on a daily basis. When she’s not coaching Mohawk Valley Fitness you can find her at sweating at an early morning CF class or sharpening her barbell skills through the Olympic Weightlifting class.
