I'm quirky and love CF. I started my CF athletic journey in 2006 and have loved every painful minute since. I own and am head coach of CF Invoke ( I am a Head Trainer for CFHQ for the Level 1 Seminars. I'm venturing into the world of NASCAR as a front tire changer...a whole new world. I have an English Bulldog named Fran. Favorite WODs: Nasty Girls, Fran, Helen, no particular order. They are all amazing.


How I Eat

I weigh and measure my food

I eat strict Paleo

Clean eating and listening to my body. Not always 100% Paleo bc I'm human.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I write my own programming

I record my workouts

I own and coach at CrossFit Invoke. Pioneering into a new sport, NASCAR this year so my training has taken new twist. It's all in the spirit of CF and learning new sports.

My Athletic Background

I have no athletic background besides CrossFit

I only played two years of sports in middle school. Beyond that, CF has become my sport and the reason I am an athlete.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

My 2/days consist of NASCAR Pit practice then CF training and an additional yoga class or PT. My body determines my rest.
