It all started when... Ronny shut down his bootcamp and I was told to
look up CrossFit on youtube. My first video was one of Camille
LeBlanc-Bazinet doing some heavy OLY lifts and dropping the weight. I
wanted to do that. My first WOD was Trevor with a Twist.

When I'm not CF-ing... I am a mother to an amazing guy, Derek. I work
full-time in a mental health facility and am in a Doctoral program
specializing in Special Education.
I coach because...
Why not? I love the progress. I enjoy seeing the excitement to crush a
workout and the community around those who are struggling. I love the
"ah-ha" moment and the huge smiles on people's faces when they get
something they felt would never happen. I love seeing the struggle, I think
it's a powerful place to be. What I love most about it is seeing where they
go with it and how much drive and motivation there is to overcome. It's
amazing what people accomplish on a daily basis. The gains are not only
physical. The gains are mental and they are definitely emotional,
confidence and self-worth become evident and translate across arenas. At
the end of the day, I feel satisfied to know I helped in some way to
facilitate movement in a positive direction.
