A few friends continually told me that I should CrossFit. My response was always, “what’s that?” When I finally tried it, I knew…day one…..that I found my new niche! I started CrossFit in September of 2011. I told the trainers that I want to compete in this sport. I competed in my first competition in January of 2012 and my goal is to compete in Regionals.
Gymnastics was my first love which I began at the age of 8 years old. I competed in gymnastics from age 8 to age 19. I coached gymnastics for over 10 years. I never thought anything else could replace my first love. I competed in track and field in high school, making it to state for high jump. I wasn’t until college when track took over and pole vault became my new love. I pole vaulted at Indiana University and then moved to California after college to chase the elusive Olympic dream. When I hung up my track spikes, I took a year to figure out what I wanted to do next and I found CrossFit waiting for me!
I am a church girl, I sing in the choir. I love photography, people, game nights, and so much more!
