Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Mississippi. I lived there all my life until moving to Arizona last summer.

What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
I enjoy a good Netflix binge. I can get sucked into a book. I enjoy being out side and exploring Arizona.

What is your occupation?
I am a special education teacher.

How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
We moved into the apartments next to Blade last summer. Nathan had always wanted to try CrossFit, and he just walked in the door. He met Zane, and we joined a few days later.

What is your favorite WOD/movement?
I really love learning and getting better at gymnastics. As a newbie, I also enjoy WODs that allow me to push PR weights.

What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
It has to be thrusters and burpees, and the combo is of the devil.

What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am probably most proud of being able to hang from the bar without pain in my shoulders. When I first started CrossFit, I had so much pain hanging from the bar even for a few seconds. I didn’t think I would ever be able to do it.

What is your favorite song to WOD to?
I enjoy anything from 90s rap music to worship music and everything between.

What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
I want to continue improving gymnastics, and one day hit that BMU.

I am…grateful I found CrossFit.
