Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Page, Az Its the small town on the mesa above Lake Powell. I loved growing up in a small town but would NEVER live in one again. haha 😉
What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
I love photography. But I love photographing people not “things”. I love people’s reaction when they see how beautiful they are in a picture. I really like painting things with Annie Sloan Chalk paint. It’s kinda dangerous, you paint one thing and all of a sudden you find yourself walking through your house looking for things to paint. I wanted to paint my bathroom cabinets and my husband wasn’t big on the idea…..so I waited until he went hunting and then I painted them. He loves it! I keep telling him he should just listen to me. 😉 Oh and I love shopping!! But I’m a “On a Mission” shopper. Go in for what you came for and get out! haha
What is your occupation?
My occupation?? Hahaha I am so very blessed!!! I haven’t worked since I had my first son, 16 years ago. I am a true stay at home Mom. I love being home, in fact it is my favorite place to be.
How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
McKelle France is the one that introduced me to Crossfit. She was telling me about it at church and said I could try it for free. I figured why not? After the class I signed up that day. I LOVE it!! It is so incredibly hard for me. haha It is physical, mental, emotional, and as crazy as it sounds spiritual. It truly is an amazing sport.
What is your favorite WOD/movement?
My favorite lift is Dead Lift. I LOVE the Dead Lift!!
What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
I hate anything overhead, I have tight shoulders so those moves are very difficult for me. I injured my knee last summer and so it swells with any squat movement or running….not loving those right now. But hopefully I can get that fixed and start working on those moves. I hate running but I hate the rower more…and I recently learned I detest the assault bike.
What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
The CrossFit accomplishment I’m most proud of is Toes To Bar during the Open.
What is your favorite song to WOD to
Terra introduced me to Eminem’s song Lose Yourself. It has become my FAVORITE. I like Eminem, Pitbull, Skrillex…I like a lot of different music. I like “dancy” stuff to work out to as well.
What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
I think that’s a tough question. I really think as you embrace CrossFit it affects all aspects of your life. I just really want to continue to improve, and be the best possible person I can be Physically, Mentally, and Spiritually.
I love…I eat…I will…I am…
I love my Savior, my family, ….. and perfume. Perfume is my weakness. My family is awesome! My husband is Jason, my children are Jake (16), Josh (14), Jace (12), and Jaylee (9). We are the “J’s”. We didn’t really do that on purpose, we loved the names Jacob and Joshua but after that we had to stick with J’s. haha I eat…??? Whatever I feel like at the moment?? haha I wish I was as disciplined as the coaches and other athletes, I figure with all their positive influence I may get there. haha I do love salads and chocolate. 🙂 I will help just about anybody, whether I know them really well or not. I really believe if you see a need and you are able to help, you should. I am very blessed. I have an awesome family and wonderful friends. I get to do CrossFit with some of the most amazing coaches and athletes I have ever met. Life is good.
