Tell us a little about yourself…
I’m just a regular woman working hard to provide for my family, I work for BP as a treasury analyst, I’m a mother of 3 and grandma of 2. I’m actually the youngest of 12 and have older nieces and nephews.
How did you get started in CrossFit?
I came across CF through a facebook ad, I had no clue what CF was … I saw the 6 week challenge and I was ready to make a change, made the appointment and met with Craig gave it a try and loved it.
What are your favorite movements to do during a wod?
I may be crazy for this but I like burpees, I don’t mind them I also like back squats because who else doesn’t want a nice booty … still working on that. I also like the rope, one thing that I got right away not sure how.
What do you love best about CrossFit?
What I love about CF the most is the community, loved the support I got from the existing members when I first started and the friends I got to make … thanks to CF I have made great friendships and looking and feeling better is the cherry on top.
When you’re not in the gym busting your butt, what is your favorite things to do?
When I’m not at the gym and not stuck @ work, you can catch me in a concert or music festivals … I love music, music is therapy to my soul, it either intensifies my feelings or changes my mood.
Tell us something that most people don’t know about yourself?
People might not know this but I have a photographic memory, I know my Drivers License #, banks routing # and all of my kids socials by heart, I can memorize anything with numbers with just one glance … oh and I was photographed by the Chicago Tribune when I was 12 playing pool!
