I was born & raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Throughout middle & high school I played both competitive softball & volleyball - I have always been an athlete at heart. Once I began my undergraduate degree at Wingte University I no longer played sports, but I needed some kind of competitive outlet. I stumbled upon CrossFit my sophomore year of undergrad and was immediately hooked. I decided to take my CrossFit level 1 Certification in 2017 to both help me gain a deeper understanding of human performance and to allow me to start coaching at CrossFit MNC. I have thoroughly enjoyed coaching the past few years! My absolute favorite thing in the world is witnessing an athlete accomplish something they never thought possible.
