I studied Biology at BIOLA University in Southern California and was very active running cross country and track and field. After earning my Bachelor’s degree from BIOLA, I began working in the Biotech industry prior to starting my family.  Working out and intentionally exercising were almost non-existent as I became busy raising five kids.I started my CrossFit journey in 2018. I had heard of CrossFit, but didn’t really know what it was all about. So, I did what anyone would do: convinced one of my best friends to go with me! We have 11 kids between us and hadn’t been able to work out in quite some time. We commiserated to each other as we realized that neither of us could do a sit-up anymore! But nevertheless, I was hooked and loved the community, encouragement, and challenge that each day brought.We moved from Los Angeles to Magnolia in 2019 and I knew I had to find a CrossFit box right away. The community at CrossFit Magnolia made me feel welcomed and part of the family right away.I earned my CrossFit Level 1 certification in 2020 and am loving the challenge of coaching and encouraging others in their fitness journey.
