1. How did you learn about CrossFit? I learned about CrossFit from the sexiest man I know. I remember him telling me that I would love it because I’m very competitive. It took some time for him to convince me to try it. I was one of those girls that we all hate that said “I don’t want to get bulky”. Now I laugh about it and absolutely love CrossFit! I can’t imagine doing anything else and I feel sorry for people running on a treadmill to get “fit”. 2. How long have you been CrossFitting? I’ve been CrossFitting for almost 5 years now. 3. What’s your favorite Nasty Girl? (and your best time) My favorite Nasty girl is Annie and my PR for Annie was 6:04. 4. If you have a military background, what service were you in and how many tours have you had? I was in the Air Force and was lucky enough not to be deployed. 5. What certifications do you have and what certifications are on your wish list? I have a Level 1 certification and would love to get my USAW cert and focus more on olympic lifting.
