Where did you grow up?
I was born in Detroit, Michigan, but grew up in El Paso, Texas.

What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
I enjoy hiking, camping, playing with dogs, and making up yummy desserts (which are usually just variations of the same thing including almonds, dark chocolate, coconut, and salt)

What is your occupation?
I work for Blue Buffalo, an all-natural pet food company, as a Senior Demand Planner (which is why my insta stories are filled with doggies)

How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
One of my best friend’s in college mom was a CrossFit coach. She would always make up WODs for us to do in our dorm room which involved some improvising: desk chairs for box jumps, plastic pull-up bar hanging from our joint dorm bathroom, squats with books, etc. She always tried to get me to go with her to an actual CrossFit class, but I refused as I didn’t want to lift heavy weights and get “bulky” (LOL). Shortly after graduating college, another one of my friends convinced me to try a CrossFit class. I decided I would stick with it, but only do workouts with just the barbell (no added weights). I guess my preference today has changed slightly 🙂

What is your favorite WOD/movement?
My favorite WOD/Movement is anything with chest to bar pull-ups, power cleans, handstand push-ups, burpees, and pistols.

What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
My least favorite WOD/Movement is anything with ring dips, rowing (unless it’s under 500m), and front squats.

What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am most proud of Blade giving me the opportunity to represent them on the Bladestrong team at regionals last year. I had no idea how competitive Blade was when I joined, and never in a million years thought I would be good enough to be on the regionals floor with such awesome athletes.

What is your favorite song to WOD to
Anything by Kendrick Lamar or Drake. Any gangster music really gets my blood flowing.

What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
I’d love to get stronger at all forms of squatting.

Fill in the blank: I love…. I eat…. I will… I am..
I love… doggies.
I eat… dark chocolate, peanut butter pretzels, and sour gummy worms.
I will… always work at being the best version of myself.
I am… happy my husband and I found our way to the Blade family!
