Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?
I grew up loving everything fitness and sports. From playing volleyball & lacrosse in high school, to D2 collegiate volleyball, to trying all types of fitness regimens (bootcamp, yoga, pilates, kickboxing, spinning, and weight lifting). I found CrossFit in 2015 when Coach Ashlee invited me to friend day. From there my love and passion for CrossFit was born! It combined all the things I love about sports and fitness- competition, excellence, fun, health, wellness, friendship, and mental focus.
Why did you become a trainer?
I became a physical therapist because it involves helping people, learning about the body, and involves teaching/empowering your client/patient to help his self or her self move better. I love nerding out on movement science.
What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?
The snatch – it’s an art comprised of the perfect balance of mobility, stability, and timing (a movement I am still striving to improve)
What is your favorite cheat food?
Wings, cheese fries, and beer!
What’s your favorite Superhero and why?
Wonder Woman. She kicks ass!
