  1. L1 CrossFit Trainer
    Athletic background includes participating in a 70.3 Ironman. Plus, I've ran two full marathons and about 20 half marathons (pr in the half is 1:29:58.) Also, played golf and ran cross country in high school.

  3. One of my dreams was to be a basketball coach at the college level some day so having the opportunity to coach people in any capacity is something I’m passionate about.

  5. Favorite sport is basketball, for sure.

  1. I started my fitness coaching career as a personal trainer for the YMCA in 2009. In 2012, I found CrossFit and have since attended L1 and L2 training courses, as well as CrossFit Kids, Mobility, Self-Defense, and Masters specialty courses. As a CrossFit Open athlete, my best finish was in 2014 at #96 in the world, and #6 in the Masters category of the 5-state Central East Region. That year I also accomplished the JumpNrope 2-part challenge of 100 consecutive double unders, and 100 speed steps in under one minute. Most recently, I am ranked by CrossFit in the top 17% of women my age worldwide.

  2. I CrossFit because I love it. I love every aspect of it. No other exercise is as fun or has a fitfam community of support like CFWR. I enjoy the variety, the functionality and the intensity. CrossFit keeps you feeling strong and fit for whatever life throws at you.

  3. I love learning, and I love sharing what I've learned. CrossFit is fun as a workout, but even more fun to coach!

  4. I started CrossFit in November of 2012.

  5. I love all sports. I played every sport I could in high school and college.
