I started CrossFit in 2009 with the newbie class and instantly fell in love with the intensity of the workouts and barbell work. Mel was one of my first coaches so it was an honor when he asked if I would be interested in coaching. I currently have my CF Level 1 Certification.
Through CrossFit and it's community I've had the privilege of being exposed to experiences that I never would have otherwise (ie: cycling , kayaking , kick boxing , even 1 tandem skydive). Also, it's helped instill the importance of nutrition and healthy eating. The community is where I've connected and made life long friends.
I absolutely love oly lifting technique. There's always something you can tweak and improve. I enjoy seeing people achieve more than they thought they could and pushing people past the limits they have set for themselves. Love that “AH HA” moment when they get a movement right or something just “clicks."
I have an adult daughter, Blake, who's in school in Kansas City at UMKC studying to be a teacher. She is my greatest accomplishment.
I graduated from SMSU with a Degree in Organizational Communications and minor in Psychology. I'm the office manager at Pierce Vision Specialists and have been there for 21 years.
