The moment I participated in my first Crossfit class in Springfield, MO over 7 years ago, I knew I wanted to be a CFcoach. I have always enjoyed working out and competing and had been participating in sprint triathlons and half marathons. The races started becoming repetitive and I was looking for a workout program with more variety. CF provides the varied workout and structure my family and I were looking for. I love that we can all workout together.

We moved to Northwest Arkansas in early 2017 and began coaching at CF Fayetteville in 2018. I love coaching and being part of other people’s workout and health journeys. When we came back, we settled down in Republic. We joined the gym, and immediately made several friends. CrossFit Republic felt like family, making it an easy transition.

Crossfit is always pushing me to be better. Whether it’s to move more weight, get a faster time, or master a new technique or movement, there is always something to strive for. I love the community and the friendships I have developed over my time with Crossfit.

Other things to know about me: I have an amazing husband! My husband Dak and I have been married for 19 years. I have two kids, Dak and Lucy who also love Crossfit as well as Cross Country and Volleyball. I have also worked for MAC Cosmetics for the past 17 years and my husband and I own Legacy Home Inspections-SWMO.

I’m so excited to not just be at CrossFit Republic, but to be coaching my CrossFit Republic family!
