I grew up in St. Louis Missouri doing gymnastics from the age of 5 -18 years old. I also played some soccer and baseball in my elementary ages. After retiring from gymnastics I began lifting weights, did some Martial arts, and did some Strong man work. I moved to Springfield Missouri where I earned a degree in Construction Management. I started Coaching Gymnastics full time at 20 and always had the desire to compete again in something. I lived in Springfield for 7 years till I moved back home. That’s when I found Crossfit. Crossfit filled my Void of wanting to compete again. I began Crossfit at 25 and my first 2 years of participating in the open I qualified for Regionals.
