Coach Monica

Born and raised in Natal, Brazil, I came to the US as a 17 year old exchange student with the hope of finding better opportunities. Ten years later I’ve learned to call the US my home. Along the way, I have been blessed with many special gifts and opportunities, one of them called PSKC.

Throughout my life, I’ve always been active. Playing all sorts of sports during school aged years, and later joining every fitness class out there. Unfortunately, I experienced the same end result…boredom. There was no feeling of accomplishment, no goals to achieve or mental obstacles to overcome. PSKC now provides that to me on a daily basis.

I’ve never been in better shape. I’m now equipped with the necessary tools to take part in events and do thing that I never believed were possible. Most importantly, I now know I can overcome any challenge life decides to throw my way.

My ultimate goal in life is to reach out and help others. Being a teacher in a public school, I have an awesome opportunity to develop kids into successful professionals and respectful adults. As a coach at PSKC, I have the awesome opportunity to help others believe they too can accomplish anything they put their heart into.

Editor’s Note: Mo is now the proud owner of the CrossFit Kids Program at PSKC equipping her to reach out and change lives for the better.
