I started CrossFit in 2010 while attending Liberty University for my undergraduate degree. After graduation, I continued CrossFit wherever life placed me on the east coast. My husband and I moved to North Carolina in 2014, and it wasn't until 2016 that I decided it was time to take fitness to the next level and turn it into a career. I earned my CrossFit Level 1 in May, and am currently completing my Health and Fitness Science Associates degree from Wake Tech. I am passionate about seeing people's lives transformed by fitness, and I believe CrossFit is the answer for anyone willing to work hard and have fun while doing it.
It was February 2009 when I first started at Triangle CrossFit. Previously, I had been training for triathlons but was beginning to get bored with that. CrossFit was the missing link to the kind of applicable fitness I was looking for. In April 2011, I received my level 1, and began coaching soon after. I have also attended the CrossFit Mobility and Goal Setting Coaches Seminars. Outside of CrossFit, I love hiking, paddling, and participating in the occasional race or CrossFit competition.
I have been interested in sports and fitness for most of my life, and graduated from UNC with a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science. I began CrossFit in 2012 and was blown away by what the human body was capable of, and how quickly those changes became evident. I obtained my Level 1 in 2015 and love seeing the positive affect that CrossFit has on people's health and lives in general. Efficient movement equals stronger, faster, and safer movement.
My interest for physical activity in sports began at an early age. Throughout school, I was involved in football, baseball and track. After many years of lifting weights at a globo gym I was introduced to CrossFit, WOW! In July 2012, I joined the CrossFit community and felt the positive energy. This led me to truly understand the philosophy of CrossFit and earn my CrossFit Level 1 in August 2017.
