I am… a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and colleague.

I like… to laugh.

I dislike… losing! 🙂

I eat… anything; my vice is Graeter’s 🙂

I will… take risks!


Tell us a little bit about yourself, hobbies, occupation, etc…

Although born and raised in Cincinnati, I now call Dayton home. I attended UD and was a setter on the club volleyball team for 4 years. Shortly after, I met and married my handsome husband, Craig, also a UD alumni and Centerville CrossFitter. We have a beautiful 14 mo. old daughter, Kyle, who is the love of our lives. 🙂 Professionally, I am a product manager at Aileron (aileron.org), a public charity, founded through the generosity of Clay Mathile. Our mission is to unleash the potential of private business through professional management.


What brought you to Centerville CrossFit and CrossFit in general?

A co-worker and several friends had joined other CrossFit gyms and raved of their experiences. 2.5 years ago, my friend invited me to join her for the 2-week free trial at CCF. I was hooked.


What goals have you achieved? What are your new ones?

Pull-ups! Kipping, strict, and, most recently, weighted. Thanks to Coach Ashlie and Coach Tina for pushing me! I now want to do a 20lb. weighted pull-up next… So I can keep doing them while pregnant next time. No, this is not an announcement… 🙂


What is your favorite movement?

Snatch! I’m not good at it, but I’m enjoying the journey.


What is your least favorite movement?  

It’s a love-hate relationship with squats, thrusters, wall balls, burpees, AD…. How do I pick just one? 🙂


What is your favorite quote or words to live by?

“Be real, be yourself, be unique, be true, be honest, be humble, be happy.”


Do you have any advice to new members or someone thinking about joining?

CrossFit is far more than just a gym. It’s a community. Be vulnerable and dare to care about your health…. Physically, mentally, emotionally. Don’t knock it until you try it. Trust me, you’ll never look back.


What do you love about Centerville CrossFit?

The peer support, the friendships, the coaching, the accountability, and the nauseating workouts!
