Jessica Parsons

Coach

Jessica spent her early years with her time dedicated to club soccer and track and field. Soccer was her first love, and this continued in college where she attended Bentley University as a 3-sport Division 2 athlete, competing in soccer in the Fall and track and field in the Winter and Spring. Jessica excelled in the 800m and 400m events, which she attributes as a big help to her mentality when approaching a CrossFit workout, where being able to handle high intensity movements for extended periods of time is a key to success. Jessica also developed a passion for long-distance running while training and running the Chicago Marathon in 2006. After years of HIIT fitness training, Jessica finally made the step up to CrossFit in the Summer of 2017. She quickly took to the competitive and supportive environment that CFBP provides. After receiving her certification to L1 Trainer in September of 2018, Jessica will look to share her passion and competitive drive with each member and potential member that walks through the doors at CFBP. Jessica has also dedicated her life to the service of students with special needs. She is the Director of Pupil Services in the Hampton, NH school system, and holds Masters Degrees’ in Instructional Design and Technology as well as Special Education, and has completed her Certificate of Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership at Northeastern University. Jessica lives in Hampton, NH with her husband Matt, and sons Kellan and Colton.

Abby Shafner

Coach

Abby began her athletic obsession at a very young age. Not only was she determined to keep up with her older brothers during every game of street hockey, soccer and baseball, she was also committed to someday beating them. Throughout high school, Abby's love for sport continued, she played soccer competitively on multiple teams, and was voted captain of the women's soccer team both her junior and senior years. After graduating from UMASS Amherst with a Bachelors in Business Administration, Abby, like so many others, began working behind a desk, in search of something to curb her competitive appetite. After a bit of coercion from her friends, in the winter of 2012, she signed up for her first class at CrossFit Boston and never looked back. Immediately hooked by the inclusive community and competitive atmosphere, Abby quickly realized that this constantly varied, ever-evolving fitness regimen was in fact, her sport (and one she can confidently beat her brothers in!). Abby became a certified Level 1 trainer in 2013, and has been a committed member of the CrossFit community ever since.
