I was a competitive swimmer in High School and played Rugby for the MSU Women’s Rugby Club in college. My husband Dan had found CrossFit through his colleagues in the LVMPD, and suggested I give CrossFit a try as I really missed the camaraderie of a team and the challenge of organized sports. From that very first WOD back in 2012 I was hooked! I started coaching after giving birth to our son Gannon in 2014, I joined CFRA in 2020. I love the community building aspects of my job as GM and have never been happier in my CrossFit family.
