  1. I started my fitness coaching career as a personal trainer for the YMCA in 2009. In 2012, I found CrossFit and have since attended L1 and L2 training courses, as well as CrossFit Kids, Mobility and Self-Defense specialty courses. As a CrossFit Open athlete, my best finish was in 2014 at #96 in the world, and #6 in the Masters category of the 5-state Central East Region. That year I also accomplished the JumpNrope 2-part challenge of 100 consecutive double unders, and 100 speed steps in under one minute. Most recently, I am ranked by CrossFit in the top 17% of women my age worldwide.

  2. I CrossFit because I love it. I love every aspect of it. No other exercise is as fun or has a fitfam community of support like CFWR. I enjoy the variety, the functionality and the intensity. CrossFit keeps you feeling strong and fit for whatever life throws at you.

  3. I love learning, and I love sharing what I've learned. CrossFit is fun as a workout, but even more fun to coach!

  4. I started CrossFit in November of 2012.

  5. I love all sports. I played every sport I could in high school and college.

  6. What I enjoy the most is my family. I have lived in Muncie for 25 years with my husband, Jim, and our eight children. Spending time with them is my favorite thing to do.
