I have been an athlete ever since I was very young. As a child I participated in ballet and gymnastics, when I got older I played basketball and ran track. After a brief flirtation with running marathons, my dad, a two-time CrossFit Games athlete, introduced me to CrossFit. I instantly fell in love with it and have been doing it ever since. After graduating from BGSU in 2012, I moved back to Cincinnati and started training with Olympic Weightlifting coach Chris Cleary. I trained with him twice a week for 8 months and Olympic Lifting quickly became one of my passions. I have competed in and judged several weightlifting meets as well as participated in numerous CrossFit competitions throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. I am also CrossFit L1 Certified. Olympic Lifting and CrossFit are my passion and I love teaching it!
