I grew up in West Lafayette, where my parents have a small international food store. After college at DePauw University, I moved to Boston. I worked at the Tanglewood Music Center and the Regattabar, a jazz club in Cambridge. I then moved back to Indiana for law school in Bloomington, where I met my husband Greg. We have two dogs, Aiko (a terrier mix) and Sage (a German shorthaired pointer/Brittany mix).
Greg had been going to CrossFit 317 for over half a year and thought I’d love it.
The February Friends and Family Day. My first regular WOD after the kickoff classes involved rowing, pull-ups, air squats, push-ups, Abmat sit-ups, and double unders.
The Friends and Family Day was on February 1, and I started the kickoff two days later.
Yes. I’ve been doing CrossFit for two months.
From the start. I love the community at CrossFit 317. Everyone is welcoming and encouraging. And I’ve found that working out in a group setting really motivates me.
Short-term: kipping pull-ups, to Rx the workouts, to have good form on lifts
Long-term: good form on lifts
Long-long-term: muscle ups!
I used to be a decent pianist. I’ve played Liszt’s Totentanz with the Lafayette and DePauw Symphonies and Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major with the DePauw Symphony. Unfortunately, I haven’t made time to keep practicing and have pretty much lost all my chops.
Favorite WOD: Not sure. I like the group WODs on Saturdays.
Least Favorite WOD: Don’t have one… yet. But 14.5 was pretty rough…
Favorite Movement: I like box jumps and double unders. Also, I just did my first rope climb and hope to get better at them!
Least Favorite Movement: Running.
I’m a staff attorney with the Indiana Court of Appeals.
Hanging out with our dogs Aiko and Sage, hiking, campfires, cooking (and eating!), and trying new things.
No. But I’ve been strictly gluten free for four years this May.
Favorite paleo: seared scallops with grilled or roasted veggies
Favorite non-paleo: probably sushi or gf pizza
1. I love fantasy/sci-fi/superhero movies.
2. I was a bartender and a server at a jazz club for a few years and absolutely loved listening to live music almost every night of the week.
3. I’ve gone skydiving twice: once in college (I threw up) and once as a group gift to our wedding party (kept the food down!).
