Growing up in Tucson, AZ my parents, both very athletic, had me try just about every sport. By the time I
got to high school I decided that I wanted to specialize in basketball. After a fun and successful high
school career I was lucky enough to head up the road to Tempe, AZ to play basketball for Arizona State
University. After a torn ACL my freshman year and wrist surgery following my sophomore year I made
one of the toughest decisions of my life, to hang it up and be done with competitive sports. I finished
out my kinesiology degree at ASU and then moved up here to the Twin Cities to attend chiropractic
school and study sports medicine. I knew that I wanted to make a career out of working with athletes,
but I also desperately missed the competitive aspects of playing sports myself.
My first exposure to CrossFit was going and watching a friend do Murph on memorial day in 2015. I
knew at that point that I had to give it a shot. What I love about CrossFit is that it makes me feel like a
competitive athlete again. It’s also very difficult for me and presents unique physical/mental challenges
that force me to learn and grow every single day. CrossFit is also rapidly changing the way that we view
human movement, training and recovery, and it’s cool to be on the front lines of that!
I was lucky enough to not only join this awesome Timberwolf community as an athlete, but also, in
2016, to move my sports chiropractic practice into the South gym. I love that I get to come to the gym
every day and help amazing athletes of all ages/shapes/skill levels to move well and feel their best. My
goal is to not only help athletes to achieve their CrossFit and fitness goals, but also to give people the
tools to feel good and move well throughout their entire lives!
