Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in Oakland California and lived most of my life here in Texas. I graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelors in Education and I am currently a Kindergarten teacher. I got married last April to the most amazing man that also enjoys crossfit as much as I do! We have two dogs that we love so much named RJ and Mia! I also enjoy dancing, traveling, food, and sports!
How did you get interested in Crossfit?
One of my best friends asked me to go with her one day. I felt a little uncomfortable at first, but I did my best to keep going and then I fell in love with it!
When your motivation is down, how do you find the drive to get up and come in?
I honestly keep going because it helps me mentally distress from a long day. I love that I am consistently taking care of my mind and body every day. It is very therapeutic for me. Crossfit is a challenge both mentally and physically and I love stepping out of my comfort zone.
What is your least favorite movement?
What is the next goal you hope to reach with Crossfit Cataclysm?
I’m hoping my endurance and stamina continue to get better. I also would like to accomplish hand stand walks and a bar muscle up!
What would you say to someone that has never tried CrossFit and looking to get started? Any tips or Advice?
I would say to go in with a clear mind and give it a shot. Experiences make a difference on how you perceive things. I always recommend people to just try it out and evaluate how they feel after attempting more than just one day. The biggest thing is consistency and I encourage people to have that mindset.
