About Coach

I started working in sports in 2015 as an intern with an Indoor Football League (IFL) team. The person on the field throwing t-shirts to the crowd, or in the back office writing media guides you probably threw out right after the game… that was me! From there, I spent a couple of seasons with a National Football League (NFL) team. My time with the Green Bay Packers opened up an opportunity to move from Green Bay to Austin, TX. I spent nearly 6 years with a sports media company in Austin. I covered competitive fitness, weightlifting, and strongman, as well as 20+ other sports (from rodeo and racing, to cheerleading and gymnastics) over that time. Knowledge about a wide variety of sports across all levels of competition… I’ve got it! After helping film a documentary on Team USA at the Senior Pan American Weightlifting Championships in Cartagena, Colombia in 2016, I became interested in coaching. I got my Level 1 in 2017 and began coaching the same year. I have been coaching ever since, and in 2022 I earned my Level 2.

Turning Point

I started CrossFit when I was in college. Truth be told, I was shy, and I wanted an excuse to get out of going to parties. I quickly realized my body was capable of a lot more than I thought, and I became drawn to the challenge. I became the girl on campus who was visiting the Rogue Fitness factory over spring break, or presenting papers on olympic weightlifters in class. As someone who was never a strong athlete growing up, CrossFit brought out a new (stronger and more confident) version of myself.

Motivation & Passion

My purpose for coaching is to guide you to show yourself that you can do hard things. Everyone comes in with their own motivation, and I aim to be the coach that keeps your motivation alive. My goal is to ensure you leave my class having learned something, or having had a fun time (ideally both!).
