First off, here is a little bit about myself: I am married and have two adorable pups that are my world. I was born and raised in the small town of Stockton, Mo, and all I’ve known since I was a kid was sports: soccer, football, track and field, cheerleading. Anything that was remotely active I was a part of and I was always doing something.

In 2012, I joined the Army to become a combat medic, and this is where I found a renewed love of fitness. But the Army’s fitness programming was not fulfilling my growth, and I became stagnant and bored. Which is when I found crossfit and I was instantly hooked.

I’ve never been the best at anything, but I’ve always been pretty good at a little bit of everything. So crossfit’s mentality of “stronger than the runner and faster than the body builder” really fit with what I wanted to be; a well-rounded, happy, healthy human being, and to help other people reach their goals.

I am so excited for the opportunity to be a part of the CFR community, that I knew from the first day I came into the gym it was more than that; it was a family… a family that has taken me in with open arms and I’m very happy to be a part of that.
