I have loved being active my entire life! I grew up on the side of a mountain where I spent most of my time riding horses, hiking, and playing outside. But the first sport I officially decided to compete in was triathlon. I was immediately hooked as soon as I gave triathlon a try and quickly became very competitive. I participated in the sport for 6 years competing in draft-legal races with my last race being in 2017 when I competed on Team USA at the Triathlon World Championships in the Netherlands.
In 2018 I gave CrossFit a try since I loved all of triathlon's off-season strength and conditioning. Once again, I have hooked right away and decided to do CrossFit as my sport. As I continued to learn more about CrossFit I developed an interest in coaching which led me to get both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Exercise Science as well as become a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. I started coaching at CFL in 2022 and it has been such a blessing as I've made incredible friends and been able to grow within the community as I develop my coaching skills.
