CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
I’m originally from Seattle. I love the Pacific Northwest and it’s there that I first learned to love the outdoors and being active. Growing up my favorite sports were skiing and gymnastics. In 2004 I moved to Texas where I earned my Bachelors in Accounting from Sam Houston State University and continued working in the Houston area. I moved to Elgin, IL in the fall of 2016 where I currently reside with my husband Duane and step-son Noah.
I first discovered CrossFit in early 2013 while living in Texas and have been addicted ever since. What I love the most about CrossFit is the community and genuine concern for, and support of, others. CrossFit Arioch is the third box that I have been a member of and while they all have slight differences, they are all the same in that they quickly became my extended family. I earned my CrossFit L1 to both continue developing myself & my fitness journey and to expand my knowledge, skills, and ability to help others improve theirs.
