About Coach

I grew up in the sports world so health and fitness have always been passions of mine. Playing volleyball in high school presented me with the opportunity to play at the collegiate level. I began my college journey at Blinn JC. In 2011, our team had an undefeated season which put us on the path to becoming National Champions and honored me with the National MVP Award. I then transferred to play at the Division 1 Level for The University of Texas at Arlington where I finished my career. In my senior year, we finished 2nd at the Sunbelt Conference Tournament. I am so thankful for these experiences. After graduating with a BS in Exercise Science, I knew I wanted to continue having a presence in the fitness world for personal goals as well as a career. In 2015 I tried a CrossFit class for the first time and never turned back. In 2018 I decided to complete my CF Level 1 Certification in order to move into a coaching role at KJ. The community and opportunity to build forever type of friendships is why I love this position. Seeing others transform and achieve incredible goals they set for themselves is the greatest reward. Without a doubt this gym is family!

Turning Point

I'm a Texas girl at heart. Moving to Colorado was a big challenge for me. Everything about my life changed so quickly. I went from having so many friends and family close by to knowing only my sweet husband. I'm sure many people experience a similar challenge, but this was definitely a big turning point in my life because those are two things I really value. There has been struggle and there has been success over the past four years, but through it all, I have learned so much about myself and grown in many ways that I needed to. Tyler, Kristy, Jeremy, all of the coaches, and all of this community have walked beside me through it all. They are not only friends but truly a family. I could never say enough words to express the gratitude I have for CrossFit and specifically KJ for creating this special place in my life.

Motivation & Passion

My purpose for coaching is to be able to pour into others what CrossFit has poured into me. You gain so much life from being healthy and feeling great, and you gain community. You don't need to be some elite athlete or even have any background in fitness. We are here to create whatever you need for YOU and we want you to join our family!
