My life was changed dramatically, and for the better, when in 2011 my beautiful baby girl was born. She's given me a whole new perspective on life, and my priorities are very different too.
I truly believe in FAMILY FIRST. This is why I now train solely at home or at Intrepid CrossFit, which is a 5 minute walk from my house.
I was a recreational gymnast from age 9-16. I didn't play sports in HS or college, but I was always active and trying new activities. I've done rock climbing, mountain biking, sprint adventure races, Triathlons, aerial fabric (the stuff from Cirque Du Soliel), Krav Maga and there are still many activities and sports I want to try and get better at (like surfing).

Both my parents were school teachers and are now retired. Since I was in the 4th grade, I always wanted to become a teacher like my parents.
I have been teaching elementary school since 2004. I love working with kids; Inspiring, motivating, and being present for those "ah ha!" moments. Having my summers off isn't bad either!
