Growing up an athlete and being involved in all kinds of sports, fitness and competition was always a part of life for me. But like most people, after college, work began, life happened, and I could not find anything that was fun, enjoyable, and competitive enough to keep my fitness in check. That is, until I bit the bullet and tried out CrossFit at Igneous. It was a little intimidating stepping into the box for the first time… but that intimidation was immediately taken away as I was welcomed, so well coached, encouraged, and always challenged. I was hooked once I started getting stronger, seeing phenomenal results, and hitting new skills that I couldn’t do before! I was a Junior High girls’ basketball, volleyball, and track coach for 7 years so I have a passion for coaching and decided to take my shot at coaching CrossFit! My goal is to create an environment where the athlete is constantly challenged to develop his/her skill level while receiving encouragement and support! I am currently a 5th and 6th grade PE coach as well and love to incorporate some of the functional fitness we practice at CrossFit in my PE program at school!
