What is your athletic background?
I grew up playing games with my two massive brothers (and a very cleverly tough sister), so strength and toughness was required for my survival. In High School, I participated in as many sports as possible and excelled in Track and Cross Country. In College I joined the track team until injuries forced me to drop out. I then discovered Jazz dance and danced professionally for an AFL team in 2007. I discovered CrossFit in 2008 and have been addicted ever since!
What is your history with CrossFit?
I am currently working full-time as the Head Trainer at CrossFit Montana in Missoula, MT. On the side I teach spin, aerobics, and dance, and have coached Track & Field (sprints/relays/hurdles) for five years (a girl has to eat!). I got my Level I in June of 2008, my Level II in October of 2009, and am currently interning with the CrossFit HQ Certification Staff.
