Athletic background: Competitive gymnast for 9 years, played high school soccer, ran track, and pole vaulted. After high school went back to the gymnastics world and trained tumbling. While tumbling I spent a season as a trampoline dunker for the New Orleans Hornets.

I discovered CrossFit while I was still training gymnastics. I will always love the sport, but there came a point where I was mostly bored and making little to no progress. Tumbling wasn’t challenging me or pushing me the way I knew I could be pushed. After taking months off from an ankle injury I was terribly out of shape and I knew tumbling wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I was looking for something to push me and challenge me everyday. I was tired of training in a routine and I was looking for something to spark my passion like gymnastics used to. In February 2013 I walked into Crescent City CrossFit and never looked back.

I would consider my previous gymnastics training and coaching experience to be my “specialty”.

Available for personal training especially for any gymnastics skills 😉
