Where did you grow up?
I grew up in the small farm town of Dewitt, Iowa.
What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
I love traveling, running, doing puzzles, and driving my kids all over the place to various sports practices and games.
What is your occupation?
I am usually an optometrist at Midwestern University. Since last March, I’ve been a stay at home mom.
How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
My husband. He was trying to get me to leave Mountainside and I was being super stubborn and kept refusing. Finally after almost a year of him bugging me I said, fine I’ll try it -thinking I would just be doing it a few months…but then almost 7 yrs later, I’m still here!
What is your favorite WOD/movement?
Running, power cleans, box jumps
What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
Anything involving a squat- I can never seem to get low enough
What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
Getting my first pull-up a few years ago. It took almost 4 years to get there but I finally did it 🙂
What is your favorite song to WOD to?
I don’t know- I really don’t pay attention to the music as long as it has a good beat.
What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
Pushups- I have such weak arms!! I can do a few here and there but not enough to do in a wood
Fill in the blank: I love… I eat… I will…
I love my family.
I eat way too much! I’m such a bad snacker
I will get back to running and jumping again slowly but hopefully soon!
