I started CrossFit in my mid 20s. In high school I was a cross country and track runner and had a very poor experience being on a team. I was very hesitant to join any type of fitness community. CrossFit is challenging, varied and encouraged me to try movements that I would have never tried otherwise. The CrossFit community is truly special and I fell in love with CrossFit during the open in 2019 and watching people come together and celebrate each others wins and accomplishments. My main job is as a special education teacher and coaching is an opportunity to apply those skills in a new area. I love seeing clients hit a PR or break out of their comfort zone and see progress. Outside of the gym I love hiking, camping, hanging out with my fiancé Ryan and our dogs.
