I was born and raised in good ol’ MN; however, I have had stints in Tennessee and Texas as well. I have two awesome and handsome brothers, and I land right smack dab in the middle of them! When I am not at work or the gym, I enjoy spending time with my two favorite mini humans, being outside and going on adventures!
I have always been an active human; I played every sport I could in high-school but my love was in basketball. I played Varsity all four years and was asked to play in college; however, the social aspect of college was more attractive to me at the time!
How I Found CrossFit
I found CrossFit by way of Yoga. I had been practicing yoga after having my second child. I had met an old coach of mine at the yoga studio – he told me to come check it out his gym… I did and have never looked back. It was exactly what I was looking for!
Why I Coach
I coach because I love to help people! I absolutely love to watch the transformation of people not only inside the gym, but more importantly, outside of the gym! It is so motivating and inspiring! Being able to celebrate a PR, an athlete crushing a goal or even hearing how someone overcame a fear is the best feeling in the world! It gives me chills just thinking about it!
