At 23 years old, I proudly wear the titles of Technical Recruiter, Cross-Fitter and Olympic Weightlifter. One is my career; the others are my passion. The lessons I’ve learned at the barbell have carried over into my career. The long hours sweating in the gym, talking myself through grueling workouts, being under the lights in competitions, and the hard-core hustle of being an athlete has proven to make me the successful recruiter I am today. Who would have known that the culmination of my athletic career and the pursuit of my dreams would teach me life lessons that I would forever hold close to my heart and apply to every aspect of my life?
