What is your athletic background?
My athletic background includes competitive gymnastics as a child that progressed into soccer, diving, and lacrosse in high school and then collegiate soccer.
What is your history with CrossFit?
I was looking for something a little more competitive after college and found Crossfit in January 2008. I became a Level One certified trainer in June of 2009 and became Olympic lifting certified in November of 2009.
What is unique about you as an athlete or individual?
I have made health and fitness an integral part of my life in every way. As an outpatient orthopedic physical therapist I get to train patients in a rehabilitative way and then I get to train clients to become better athletes with CrossFit. Crossfit continues to challenge me as a trainer and an athlete by giving me the opportunity to work with people from a broad spectrum of health and fitness backgrounds, all while pushing myself to different levels of training.
