Where did you grow up?
 Yakima, WA.  
It is in central Washington State

What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
After all my husband and I went through in 2015, I have a heart to serve.  I recently started volunteering with a ministry that Natalie Daricek’s mom runs at Perryville Womens prison.  It is a Christian ministry that provides mentors to the women who are in prison and will be released within 6 months.  It is really rewarding and I love meeting the women in there who have such a passion to follow Christ and do things differently.

What is your occupation?
I am a Director of Corporate accounts for W L Gore & Associates.  I negotiate contracts with hospital systems for our medical devices.

How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
In Spokane before we moved to Phoenix in 2013, I was at a gym that had more cross training / tabata style classes.  They said I should look for a CrossFit gym when I got to Arizona.  I started at one in Chandler but as I found out they did not use “Blade Standards of Movement” once I got to CrossFit Blade.

What is your favorite WOD/movement? 
Power Cleans

What is your least favorite WOD/movement? 
Wall Balls

What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?  
Finally getting chest to bar pull ups in the Granite Games.  They were slow and ugly but they were legitimate!

What is your favorite song to WOD to?
Usually classic rock but Anthony’s playlist is growing on me.

What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit? 
Finally get a strict pull up and get a hand stand push up.

I am… very grateful for how blessed I am.
