What do you do for a living? Right now I work at Seasons 52 but perpetual student is a more accurate description.

How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first workout? I had friends introduce me to CrossFit years ago and to be honest I cannot remember what it was. But it probably had to do with box jumps which took me months to be able to learn the coordination of.

How many days do you CrossFit? What classes do you normally attend? 3 days a week/ and it just depends on my work schedule. I’ve visited almost every class time except 6 am. I don’t do mornings.

Favorite CrossFit movement/workout? Chippers in general. I also really love rowing and cleans.

Least favorite CrossFit movement/workout? Snatches and overhead squat. Mostly because I’m terrible at them.

What motivates you/keeps you coming back to CrossFit Mudtown? I always tell people I’m not an athlete. But what I love about CrossFit is that with every workout I get better, faster, and stronger. I also will never accomplish it. So I keep coming and finding challenges to work at. I appreciate Mudtown because the attention to form and solid coaching and community makes me proud to be apart of.

Favorite thing about Birmingham? I love the hidden talent Birmingham holds. I have met so many aspiring musicians and artists. It’s like an underground treasure

What accomplishment are you most proud of (outside and inside of the gym)? My first pull-up during the Open.

What is your favorite meal? Tacos of every variety

What are some of your interests outside of CrossFit? I travel a lot. If I’m not in a different country at least once a year something is horribly wrong.

What is one goal that you are currently working on? Trying to get accepted to grad school. I’m convinced it’s more work than the actual schooling.

Do you have a hidden talent? Not at all lol

Tell us a fun/interesting fact not many people know about you. I cannot whistle for the life of me.
