I was born in Chattanooga and played softball throughout childhood and high school. I followed softball scholarships from Chattanooga State to The University of Memphis. While in Memphis, I had to fulfill an internship requirement for my Exercise Science program, which landed me at Faction Strength and Conditioning. This is where I had my first real exposure to CrossFit, proper movements, and coaching. I was fortunate enough to learn under Mike Bledsoe, Doug Larson, and CTP (Barbell Shrugged crew). After graduation, I moved back to Chattanooga, completed my Level 1, and began coaching at Brigade and with Unbroken. I am a full time graduate student in Athletic Training at UTC and coach a couple of the 6 am classes.
