I am a mother of 3 ( Diego 7, Octavio 6, Elysa 18 months) married to Daniel Orama, who I met in the Marine Corps. I started CrossFit in Harlem with AfroBrutlaity , but continue to learn and hone my craft at CrossFit Maven. I started crossFit to lose weight and deal with the challenges of a baby in the hospital due to prematurity, a son with special needs, a husband in the military, and being a veteran in a civilian world, who truly wants back in the military. CrossFit changed my life has helped me lose 40lbs and has gotten me back into the shape I was when I was a Marine. I look to become a trainer and my biggest goal is to be able to make the games. I have a long way to go but as Marine Corps and CrossFit has taught me , I will get there if I keep working hard and never give up.
