I use CrossFit as a tool to help individuals discover their own personal greatness. Whether training to move free from pain or go to the Games, I am confident I can help you get there!

I have been coaching over the past 15 years in athletics. During that time, I also worked for non-profit and educational centers geared towards non-violence education and prevention which taught me a lot about effective communication. The last 5 years I have been the owner and head coach of Iron Industry Athletics Gym in Bellingham which is home to a fantastic community of people that inspire me every day.

More on My Background

I was 13 years old when I first really started working out. I wanted to prepare myself for playing football and looking at me simply would tell you how unprepared I was. At 5′ 3″ 204 pounds moving for me was tough so my Dad (who also was the football coach) started me out “slow”. Tuesday and Thursday mornings we would run before school at 6am and Monday, Wednesday, Friday, we would lift weights after school. This was my schedule for about the next 6 years. My runs got longer, my lifts got stronger. I am forever grateful for the push he gave me and the learned habit of working hard.Then in college life took an unexpected turn leading me down the path of advocacy and education about domestic violence and sexual assault. Through 8 years of this work, I learned a lot of beautiful things, but had lost sight of keeping balance in my own life and at 27 found myself struggling with my health. Years of consumption left me at over 300 pounds with bad habits. Then as many experience it, a friend introduced me to CrossFit.

8 years later I am professionalizing my renewed passion. After managing and lead coaching a gym in LA, I am back in the PNW striving to remind all the people I interact with that they CAN be happy, proud, and get EVERYTHING they want out of life. Working out was a way for me to see accomplishments every day. Running 1 extra mile or doing 1 more push-up even…I made a choice to do those things and now am right where I want to be.
