I grew up in Springfield for most of my life and it wasn’t until I joined the Army that I began to see other parts of the world. I have been athletic my whole life but did not take health and fitness as seriously as I did after I became pregnant with my son. Looking to lose the baby weight I started becoming more consistent with my eating and exercise habits and while working to better myself I fell in love with the whole process. That’s when I decided that I wanted to help others improve their lives through fitness as well so I obtained my ACSM CPT and to further my knowledge and skills I pursued my Exercise and Movement Science degree which I will be completed by December 2018.

Being competitive by nature and always looking for new and interesting challenges, my husband and I found this crazy mud run called a Tough Mudder. After our first time we both were hooked and over the years have completed over 30 of these runs with no end in sight. When training for these endurance based events I started looking for different outlets to improve ourselves and found CrossFit Republic. Right when I stepped in the gym I instantly felt welcomed and CFR feels like my second home now. I am so grateful to have the chance to provide others with that same positive and encouraging experience while pushing them to be the best versions of themselves.
