What is your favorite part about coaching?
Watching our athletes grow in strength, not only physically but mentally. Watching their confidence grow as they hit PRs, master a move, and/or commit to themselves and their health. It's such a blessing to be a part of that growth. It's not only life changing for them, their families but all who know them and are inspired by them at CFLD as well! The ripple effect is fun to witness!

Any of the Hero WOD’s. It’s so emotional & such a mental challenge to complete these WODs.

Personally, fitness has been what I call my therapy for years now ... I have struggled with anxiety and depression and CrossFit helps keep it under control.

We are blessed to have so many down to earth and humble people - I just love it!

Photography - (which is also my business) I have always loved capturing the unfiltered beauty of people, architecture & landscapes. Writing, good food, live music, anything creative.

Married since 2010 to (Coach) Bryan, we have two girls who are the light of my life, an orange Leo kitty who thinks he’s human, two blue heelers who are wild and crazy but we love them. We love the beach, being outdoors, taking photos, riding the four-wheeler, scavenger hunts, painting/doing anything creative!

What is something interesting/funny/odd that not many people know about you?
I worked for the City of Gatlinburg, TN right after college and lived in TN for 2 years. I always wanted to be a travel writer & photographer & travel the world.
