tell us a little about yourself.

I am 35 years young. I have two children Addison(5) and Avery(3). I am married to my best friend, Adrian. And I am a nurse at Eskenazi Health.

How did you get involved in CrossFit?

Adrian talked me into it.

What was your first WOD/experience?

It was a Saturday Group Workout. It was groups of 3 and I can only remember that Heidi was one of my partners and there were box jumps and push press.

When did you start coming to CrossFit 317?

November of 2013, i think?

Is this the first CrossFit you’ve worked out at / how long have you been CrossFitting for?

Only here and about 1.5 years.

When did you realize that CrossFit was right for you?

That first day. I was ready for more.

What are you short-term and long-term CrossFit goals?

My short-term goals: Start RX’ing more frequently and Working on Kipping

My long-term goal: Get a Freaking Pull Up….Lord Jesus!

What is your biggest accomplishment?

1. Sticking with Crossfit for a year and a half. 2. Staying Married (its hard work)

What is your favorite / least favorite WOD/movement?

Favorite WOD: Anything that takes sheer will power. I do not give up easily.
Least Favorite WOD: Any that have movements that I cannot do (pullups, hand stand push ups etc.)
Favorite Movement: Clean and Lunges
Least Favorite Movement: Snatch

What do you do for a profession outside of CrossFit?


What are your hobbies outside of CrossFit?

I like watching movies, going to concerts and sporting events, playing with my kiddos and traveling.

Do you eat Paleo or Zone?

Both and Much Much More. I love to eat. (Seriously, NO)

What is your favorite paleo/non-paleo meal?

The only Paleo meal I have ever had was Artie’s shredded pork and sweet potatoes, so I guess it is my favorite. I love a good filet mignon and salad.

Do you use any supplements?

I use Advocare Spark and Muscle Fuel occasionally. I also like Progenex Recovery.

Give me 3 fun facts about you!

1. I am the CF317 Resident First Responder
2. I have never played a sport (some people seem surprised by this)
3. I can ride a motorcycle (people seem more surprised by this)!
