I’ve always had a passion for fitness. At a young age I worked my way through all of the different competitive sports:  swimming, basketball, volleyball, & track. As High School approached I narrowed my concentration to track, cross country, and swimming.  During high school I took a weightlifting class; this fueled my drive to want to lift heavy weights more which turned into workouts with the Football team during their off season. Once college came around all of the group sports stopped, but the weight training and running continued. My longing to be back on a team led me to Crossfit in 2012, which like anyone else, I immediately fell in love and the rest is history….

 

I love helping people build confidence in themselves, and seeing the spark that ignites when they  start to believe in themselves too. I personally get to witness this growth when coaching the 6 Week Challenge groups and the Little Operators (kiddos) that come through our door. Seeing other people’s happiness and confidence grow reminds me of why I love what I do.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas

I have been passionate about health, fitness and nutrition for as long as I can remember.  Growing up I was a competitive volleyball player, and after school I turned to racing (5k, 10k, 1/2 marathon) and triathlons to fulfill that desire to continue competing.  I started Crossfit in 2013 with my husband and his ODA and instantly fell in love with the sport.  While I feel so blessed to be a part of this community where I am able to continue to compete and grow as an athlete, coaching our members/athletes and helping them obtain their individual goals is far more rewarding.  The relationships that I have developed with my athletes and nutrition clients are among my most treasured.

Began my fitness journey over 15 years ago training neighborhood kids over the summers to prepare for sports. This evolved into a lifelong curiosity of all the challenges physically the body could endure. My curiosity took me into the Special Operations community to test my training habits and physical preparedness where I have spent the last 13years serving(current). This ultimately led me to the highly competitive sport of CrossFit. I now use this experience to help people physically but most importantly mentally to reach there goals.
Truly my passion lies in competition, and human movement in all forms.  I have enjoyed a life full of physical pursuits ranging from working as a park ranger, military service, to practicing martial arts.  After the military I decided to formally pursue my passion by attending UT Austin's Kinesiology program.  While at UT I worked at the campus rec center, outdoor department, fitness assessment lab, and worked as a personal trainer.  It wasn't until after college that I attended my first Crossfit class in 2010 and was instantly hooked.  After experiencing the benefits of function fitness first hand, I started coaching in 2011 and never looked back.  Now I enjoy helping clients along their path to better qualities of life achieved through higher levels of fitness.
