Bio

I started CrossFit in December of 2008. I competed in my first open 2012 and regionals 2012. I placed fourth the the 2013 CrossFit Games as a master competitor age 40-44, which was a privilege being the first year the new age category was introduced. I'm looking forward to 2014 :)

My Athletic Background

As a young girl I was a gymnast for nine years and had to stop due to injuries so I started Karate and jazz dancing.

My husband introduced me to CrossFit at the age of 37. When I started CrossFit I noticed increased results in all 10 athletic domains immediately, which made me kiss goodbye to conventional training. I'm stronger than I ever have been before at 42 years old! Still progressing and improving everyday, thats why I love this sport :)
