I started weightlifting consistently in high school to prepare me for Track and Softball and was formally introduced to Olympic Style Weightlifting mid-college when I met my former Coach Jinping Ma. With him I trained and competed at the National level for multiple years and was able to travel to China to train with the Beijing National team. While training I found a passion for coaching, obtained my MA degree in Kinesiology, and began working as a strength and conditioning coach at the University of Northern Iowa. Weightlifting has forever changed my life and has rooted itself into my heart. It has allowed me to make many life long friends, introduced me to my husband, and lead me to Green Bay, WI. I joined Crossfit One Shot to find a new family to share my experiences with and to grow as an athlete.

I CrossFit because...

I Lift because Weightlifting makes me a stronger person inside as well as the outside. It can push you to limits that you didn't know you could overcome and has taught me that the only barriers that exist are the ones you put in place. It shows that overcoming even the smallest victories are so rewarding.

I Coach because...

Weightlifting can be challenging and quickly become a humbling experience. It takes time, patience, and dedication just like many other things and when people find the fire that ignites their passion they see such great gains in strength and self confidence.
