How did you find out about CrossFit? Vince was a member for at least a year, and he kept asking me to join. I kept telling him I wasn’t in good enough shape to join yet. Having just had knee surgery, who knew it was just what I needed!! (he did!)
Did you play sports back in the day? Or was it all smoking butts under the bleachers? No Butts for this girl! I was a Cheerleader and I ran track too.
How has CrossFit changed your life outside of the gym? Crossfit has given me a positive body image, and confidence that I didn’t have when I joined in 2012. Strong is awesome, and I can do whatever I put my mind to!

Name one goal/personal achievement you would like to achieve with the gains made through CrossFit? The goals I had for this year was to win the Seine Boats and Dory Races. The Rowgue Girls had my back and came out with a win and I won my 3rd International Dory race in June. I have one more Dory Race in August to qualify to row up in Nova Scotia!
