Coach Intro

The cool thing about stories, they never end. Mine is still being written and told. We can go down memory lane and reminisce about how I first found coaching. During my sophomore year of high school, I was in a health science class. The teacher was also a coach and I was the only non-senior in the class. She put on the 2012 CrossFit Games. It was a moment of purpose; why else would I be there and no one else care about this but me? I immediately asked my P.E. teacher, "What is CrossFit?" "Where can I sign up?" It didn't take one day for me to find a gym, sign up, and be hooked. I never really found my "niche" until CrossFit. I always was a dabbler in all sports but didn't stick to any one very long. I have always been competitive and found that side of CrossFit very quickly. I wanted to be really great at CrossFit competitively, so I found my second CrossFit home not too far from the first. The owner told me I should do Olympic Weightlifting on top of CrossFit. We all know that you have to have so many modalities to be the best-of-the-best in CrossFit, so I was all in! This same owner not only believed in my CrossFit dream at the time but also believed in me as a coach. I was told I should get my CrossFit Level 1 Certification. I owe CrossFit, that coach, and so much to that moment in high school. Here we are about 5 years in and I am a hard advocate of CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting, and doing anything you set your mind to! I am striving for the Olympics of 2024 in the sport of Weightlifting. I believe that is an achievement of the highest degree to just say. If you do anything that takes all your worth and heart, it is an achievement. I am proud to shoot for my dreams and make strides along the way! I am honored to teach many walks of live sports like; Gymnastics, CrossFit, and Olympic Weightlifting. I can't wait to achieve my bachelors in Business Management with a minor in Philosophy.
