I am a Level 2 CrossFit Coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, AFAA Certified Fitness Instructor, Indoor Cycle Instructor, Fitness Boxing Coach, Athlete, avid marathon runner, and a mother of 3 amazing boys. My past career was in Human Resource & Management with specialties in Immigration Law, Worker’s Compensation, and Recruitment.
I started CrossFit in 2011 simply because a friend saw the “CrossFit Games” on TV and mentioned, “you’ve heard of CrossFit right!? It speaks to who you are!” I hadn’t tried yet, so off I went to CrossFit Franklin for my very first humbling class. That one hour class changed me. I was introduced to an amazing community of athletes & coaches who welcomed me & encouraged me. At that moment I committed myself to learn & uphold CF standards and grow as an athlete pouring out perseverance, setting high standards for myself, and never allowing myself to give anything but my very best.
As a coach & athlete I am passionate about ensuring that each and every athlete executes movements properly and safely, but always specific to their specific needs & abilities. I coach with the intention that every athlete comes into the “Box” for a one hour class for many different reasons & many different needs. I also don’t know what they face outside the Box walls, so I pledge to always make that one hour the best part of their day both mentally & physically with 1:1 attention and reminding them “Can’t Is Not An Option”. The real gift of CrossFit is how it affects athletes in their everyday lives in so many positive ways.
I love CrossFit, my crossFit family and our community and there is no “unknown” that I can’t face head on. As a coach I will always prepare our athletes for the “Unknown” with tons of positive motivation!
