About Coach

I am 24 years old and was born and raised in Arizona. I grew up competing in rodeos with my horses and ran track until I found my true love for Weightlifting and CrossFit in high school. I love to travel as much as possible and if I am not working or training you can usually find me on a beach.

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

I found CrossFit in 2009 when I was 14 years old. I had always played sports growing up and wanted to get stronger and find something else to challenge me. My dad is a fireman and told me that he heard one of his fellow firemen ran something called a Crossfit gym out of his backyard and that I was welcome to try it out. I showed up on my first day as a skinny 14 year old to a class that consisted of one big fireman and two huge ex-military men and I immediately thought I would not fit in. I have never met a more encouraging and helpful group of people that made me feel right at home and that’s when I realized how amazing the Crossfit community is. I am grateful I found CrossFit at a young age, not only as an athlete, but as a young girl who hadn’t learned to appreciate her body and what it was capable of yet. I was lucky enough to have incredible coaches from the start that not only taught me how to lift correctly, but to become mentally and physically more confident. I have been inspired ever since to become that kind of coach to someone else and nothing makes me happier than watching athletes have that “lightbulb” moment in the gym.
