Need a fitness trainer? I'm your girl! Due to the pandemic, I had an obscene
amount of time on my hands. While I continued working on my craft through
virtual projects and classes I also studied for and passed my Personal Training
exam through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and started
O'Connell Coaching, my online personal training business. Althletics and
fitness are things I've always been passionate about and the lifestyle
of an being an artist has inspired me to help others find their strength mentally
and physically! Check out my website here for more info!
Produce virtual live stream concert: check! The nonprofit I work for in Hell's Kitchen is still operating as an essential service, providing food and other emergency items during COVID19.
