As a former competitive cheerleader, I wasn't sure what I was going to do to maintain my athletic lifestyle once I started college. I stumbled into a Crossfit box after a few years of mistreating my body and before I knew it I was trading in my old lifestyle for one of discipline and focus.

Since then, I've earned the role as head trainer at my local box & redeveloped a passion for gymnastics. I live on the rings, and I love to flip-even if there's a burpee attached to it. Despite my strong passion for gymnastics, I have always been one of the "strong ones" so I've found myself developing my skills as a utility player. I'm ready to be an asset in the NPGL.
