I moved to Michigan in 2010 from Seattle, WA. I have a natural love for the outdoors, and enjoy adventures involving fitness, family, and friends! When I’m not in the gym, you’ll probably find me exploring the woods with my ruck! In 2015, I became an ACE certified group fitness instructor, and dove into instructing cardio classes. In 2018, a friend invited me try CrossFit. The blend of cardio endurance and strength training quickly humbled me as an athlete. It was a challenge, and I loved it! I signed up right away. CrossFit is scalable to any and all fitness levels, and I love the community it brings together. It quickly became my passion, so I went for the CrossFit L-1 course in 2021, and started coaching at Mastodon!
I have lived in Michigan my whole life and moved back to Monroe after living in Mount Pleasant and getting my Master’s in Human Development and Family Studies. My passion for fitness started in college when I began my journey to transform into a healthier version of myself. I am a certified AFAA Group Fitness Instructor, certified in Zumba, STRONG by Zumba, Zumba Kids, POUND, and personal training. I started CrossFit in 2019 and the variety and challenge of the workouts hooked me, but what I love the most is the supportive community and Mastodon is the best! When I’m not at the gym, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and going for walks with my dog, Maizy.
