I have been married for 2 years. My husband and I are both from Maple Grove, MN. We just moved to Vacaville in April of this year (2018) from Little Rock, AR. I graduated with a BA in Graphic Design from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire. One of my biggest achievements has been graduating college and getting a job in my career field right out of college. Other than CrossFit, I love hiking, biking, cooking and most everything art-related!

I love CrossFit because it is diverse, never boring, allows me to set goals/achieve them, and always offers a good challenge. Plus, it’s a ton of fun! When I first moved here I tried out a few different gyms and CFVV stuck out to me because they had a great sense of community and seemed like it would be a place I would have a lot of fun! Overall, CrossFit has made me stronger both physically and mentally. I love being and feeling strong physically, but the greatest result that I see because of CrossFit is the ability to translate overcoming tough workouts into overcoming tough life situations/decisions. I have also met some pretty amazing people on my CF journey that I wouldn’t have met without it!

I was so excited when I was asked to be a training at CrossFit Vacaville. First and foremost, I want to be able to help people on their journey as so many of my past coaches have helped me. I’ve spent many years learning from the athlete perspective and am excited to get the opportunity to now learn from the coach perspective and use my past knowledge and new learned knowledge to help others.

My favorite CrossFit exercises involve anything with a barbell, especially the Clean. My motivation and drive in life is practicing a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy life to the fullest. I thrive on getting a little better each day in any way possible.
