About Coach

I’ve always had a love for movement growing up whether from extracurriculars (dance, cheerleading, and gymnastics) or time spent outdoors. In my adult life, I have gained even more of an appreciation for outdoor activities (hiking, kayaking, and slacklining). I stay busy coaching at Man O’ War Fitness, advocating for children as a CASA volunteer, and boarding dogs at my apartment. I’m so grateful for my fitness and health as it allows me to live the life I want and doesn’t hold me back! Helping others gain a sense of health and wellness in their own lives is what keeps me coming back as a coach every day!

Turning Point

As women growing up in cheerleading and dance, there was a clear preference for a singular ideal body type. I find this emphasis permeates our culture and often makes women feel like they are not good enough or don’t fit in. Eventually, CrossFit provided a community of diverse individuals that prioritized function over body shape. I now value what my body can do much more than how it looks.

Motivation & Passion

Since day one as a coach, I have loved working with people who are new to fitness, seniors, and anyone getting back into fitness after a break. Although the CrossFit Games are impressive and people’s ability to execute high-skill movements and great feats of strength, I find the most impressive people to be ordinary folks that choose to prioritize their health and wellness in their busy schedules so that they can live long and fit lives.
