Where did you grow up?
I’m from El Centro, CA. It’s a smaller border town in southern CA most people have never heard of.
What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
I love to read books. I also ride dirt bikes with my fiancé Keith, and enjoy spending time with him and our corgi, Elwyn.
What is your occupation?
I work for a John Deere construction equipment dealership. I’m a sales coordinator and manage the attachment inventory for the company.
How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
I first started CrossFit in 2011 at an all women’s CrossFit gym in Orange County. I was a manicurist in a salon at the time and several of my clients went there so I thought I’d check it out as I’d heard about CrossFit from various people before. I did a trial class that I think I almost threw up in, couldn’t walk the next day and of course was hooked! Several gyms and some off and on over the years but I always come back because I think it’s the best way to get and stay in shape.
What is your favorite WOD/movement?
I love back squats and anything body weight or gymnastics related.
What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
I don’t care for burpee box jump overs and I definitely need to practice snatches more.
What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
The first time I got a ring muscle up. I was not expecting it at all and I was so excited!
What is your favorite song to WOD to?
I don’t have a favorite song but I like hip hop or rap to work out to. It’s not what I usually listen to but 90s country doesn’t help me move faster.
What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
I want to be able to RX+ more workouts and get better and more efficient in my lifting. I’d also love to be able to squat 300# but that’s more long term, definitely not next.
