CrossFit Athlete / Mom / Food & Health


1. How long have you been lifting?

  • I have been lifting for 4 years.

2. Why do you lift?

  • Why do I lift ??? I lift because it makes me feel badass lol. I lift because I want to be a good healthy role model for my kids. I lift because I want to show my daughter that strong is the new skinny. I lift because of the community. I lift because of the rush it gives me. I lift because it makes me happy :)

3. How does lifting influence other areas of your life, outside the gym?

  • Lifting influences so many other areas in my life.. It has taught me patience, which is key when becoming a parent. Lifting has influenced me to look at the food I'm putting in my body everyday and has taught me that real food is fuel. Lifting has given me confidence that I use throughout my workday that I didn't have before. One of the best parts of lifting is the community that comes along with it. Lifting is my "me time" it keeps me sane which than helps with every other area in my life :)

4. What are some of your other hobbies or passions besides lifting?

  • Another passion of mine is food and health in general. I love learning about healthy food and the proper way to fuel our bodies. One of my favorite things to do is walk every isle in Whole Foods with my brother Jackson to see what's new. I LOVE kid free trips to target and of course spending quality time with my family.
