I’m a new product introduction project manager for Amazon Robotics. My mom, dad, brother and our emotionally damaged rescue dog Murphy live out in western mass. When I’m not at work, I travel, run, hike, ski, cook, work out at DPT, listen to podcasts and read anything I can get my hands on!

9. What would you tell someone who has just started or is thinking about starting DPT?

When Emily brings over the heavier kettle bell/plate/dumbell, pick it up. If Callie tells you to put on a weight vest or puts a chain on your back, let it happen. They know what they’re doing. you’ll probably surprise yourself and be glad you did. 🙂
