1. Where are you from? What do you do for work? Family?
I’m from Colorado, but my blood’s gotten too thin from the beautiful Atlanta weather so I wouldn’t move back.
I’ve worked in investment banking, trading, and PCS for most of my career. Currently, I’m a private wealth manager for a family trust. I’m loving the reduced hours and flexibility of the job (ie – more CrossFit and outdoor time!).
I have three beautiful (and drama-filled) girls – 12, 10, and 8 that keep me on my toes!
2. When did you start CFP?
My first CrossFit class was in August of 2012. I’ve always been a gym rat, looking for the next “craze”. I was just starting to hear about CrossFit so I honestly bought a groupon thinking I’d go for 30 days and get a few new workout ideas that I could incorporate into what I was already doing. But, Travis coached the class and put me in my place pretty quickly. 3 ½ years later he’s still doing it!
3. What’s your biggest fitness/health accomplishment since starting CFP?
Understanding CrossFit! Now that’s a journey that’s not even close to completion. 3 ½ years in and light bulbs still go off! CrossFit is as much of a mental journey as a physical one for me!
4. What are your future fitness goals?
Mental strength. I’m still scared to pick up the “heavy” weight! I know it drives Travis and Taylor crazy! Ha!
5. What do you do for fun?
Well, clearly every one of my Facebook friends know that Jill and I like to have a few party nights out! It’s all about moderation people! Lolol!
I love the outdoors – must be the Colorado girl in me! I love to hike, or really do anything outside where I can enjoy the Atlanta weather!
6. Favorite lift/workout?
Front squats. And, I LOVE chippers!
7. Least favorite lift/workout?
Snatches – blech!!
8. What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start at CrossFit Passion?
My biggest sell when I talk about CFP is that the coaches are super technical. Learn the proper technique from the get-go so you stay healthy and advance! Second, this group is up for anything – from paddle board yoga to tough mudder to fun nights out! You’ll find lots to do both in and out of the box with this crew!
