What made you join the Crossfit community?

Ran a successful personal training company for many years, and came across crossfit on youtube. Had the brilliant idea of trying a “wod” and couldn’t finish the workout. In turn, made me question my fitness level. I then started to incorporate crossfit style workouts with my clients and myself and saw great results. I was sold!

Why Did you Join the CrossFit Community? 

I’ve always enjoyed lifting weights, and after high school I needed something to do outside of class. I stumbled upon the CrossFit Games on youtube in 2014 and began to watch more and more until I decided to put together my own home gym, and the rest is history! 

Goals for Crossfit Career: 

My main goal is to enjoy being healthy and able-bodied, and sharing that joy with others by helping them achieve their own goals. I want to assist people in casting a vision for their own well-being and pursue that vision in a fun, disciplined way alongside others. 

Hobbies outside of Crossfit: 

 I love going on hikes, reading books, and growing my relationship with Christ.

Interesting fact: I am roughly 10% peanut butter and 90% coffee
