About Coach

I grew up in Colorado, biking, and skiing and loving all that the outdoors has to offer in this beautiful state. In High School, I ran Cross Country and played soccer. I skied and snowboarded throughout college. During and after college I became more sedentary. It wasn’t until after I had my son that I started to live a healthier more athletic life as an adult. I participated in several sprint triathlons as well as a few half marathons. After my second child, I began wanting a different type of workout experience. I was tired of working out on my own and really craved a social experience. My husband introduced me to CrossFit and after about a month I was sold! I got my L1 after about a year and a half and started coaching shortly after. I really like that there is such a variety in Cross fit. Everyone has at least one thing that they are good at, and we all that multiple things at which we can grow and become better. The variation of movements and intensity coupled with the tight community assures that this sport will never get old.

Turning Point

A couple of my biggest turning points athletically have been after the birth of each of my children. Big life transitions have offered a chance for me to gain perspective on my life and make the changes needed to go in a certain direction. After my son was born I knew I needed to change if I wanted to be a part of his life in adventures like skiing and hiking. I was a single mom at the time, and I started out running on the treadmill when he went to bed at night. Eventually, one mile became two and my fiancé (now husband) signed me up for a sprint triathlon. He believed in me before I could believe in myself. My ability to run and swim and bike translated into my confidence to try more: mountain biking, snowshoe racing, and longer distance running. After my second child, I was hoping to bounce the right bike, but I struggled with some postpartum depression and found that training alone would not fit the bill. That’s when Oat introduced me to CrossFit. I found a family and a sport I love to this day.

Motivation & Passion

I am motivated by seeing athletes make connections. I love teaching a new progression or movement and watching someone go from “I don’t think I can, but I will try” to “I did it!” Having someone believe in my has made a gigantic difference in my own athleticism and I enjoy watching my belief in our individual athletes transform the way they see themselves. I am also passionate about virtuosity or doing the common thing uncommonly well. When we bring intentionality to the way we move everything changes. New passions include breathing and mindset.
