I was born and raised in the Portland area. I started CrossFit a few years ago when a few of the people I rock climbed with invited me to a class. I was hooked! I love how much it pushes me, the supportive community, seeing how movements and workouts that were once challenging (or impossible) become easy, and I absolutely LOVE seeing
the benefits cross over into my outdoor adventures. My favorite thing about coaching is building relationships with the kids and seeing their excitement when they see themselves get stronger. I teach 4th grade at Boeckman Creek Primary in Wilsonville so it's fun to connect with kids in a different setting.
On the weekends, you can usually find me outside. I love backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, biking...pretty much anything outside! I also try to travel as much as possible. I was able to live in Spain before becoming a teacher which was the perfect place to put my degree in Spanish to good use.
