- LV 1 Cert
I am a Springfield native, graduated from Glendale High School in 2005 and Drury University in 2009. After college I moved to Lake of the Ozarks to teach 8th grade math and coach volleyball at School of the Osage. I really began my fitness journey there at the lake. I was an athlete in high school and always enjoyed exercise but never took it too seriously. Once at the lake I began running with a group of women and I fell in love with the open road. I then decided to run multiple half marathons and a full. In 2013 I was introduced to Crossfit and have never looked back. I love that every workout is different and that I can challenge myself on a daily basis. I walk through the door everyday because of the community and love of the people around me.
In January 2015 I married my wonderful husband, Charley, and we moved back to the Springfield area. I now teach 8th grade math at Nixa Jr High. In May 2017 we are expecting our first child, a little boy! We are so excited and cannot wait for this journey. After moving back to Springfield, I found CFR and knew I couldn’t go to another box, it’s just too good. I have grown as an athlete, person and coach by being a member here. I got my Level 1 Training Certification (2016) because I want to help people begin to enjoy exercise and find the many benefits in being healthy. I hope to help others accomplish goals and celebrate even the smallest of victories.
