Felice grew up in northern Virginia outside Washington, DC, and attended (and cheered at) George Mason University.  She moved to North Carolina in 2008, and to Boone in 2016.  Her first WOD was at CrossFit Versatile in Greensboro, NC, and soon joined  CrossFit Postal the day after she moved to Boone.

Felice received her L1 certification at CrossFit Charlotte in May of 2018, and coached at CrossFit Postal from then until moving to Winston-Salem in September 2019.  She has dropped into Camel City CrossFit over the past 3 years, and became a permanent resident at the box in October.  Felice can't express how excited she is joining the #camelstrong team and joining the Camel City coaching staff!
