I Grew up in the mean streets of El Centro, CA. I came from an athletic family and swam competitively from the age of 3 up until high school where I had to choose between softball and swimming. I chose softball and went on to play college volleyball and softball. 

Jump forward to 2009, I was extremely overweight and just faced one the most disappointing crossroads of my life. My friends were talking about this thing called “CrossFit” and about some guy and his wife doing fitness classes out of their house in a cul de sac. I didn’t really have a choice to go with them because I car pooled with them to work. After my first class, I was hooked! I became CFL1 certified in 2010 and ran CrossFit swim classes for CrossFit Imperial Valley (CrossFit Amundson at the time). I eventually made my way to Yuma, AZ and have found a home at CrossFit Yuma to continue coaching and helping others. 

The thing that I love most about CrossFit is the community. You meet people from all different walks of life and even though you may have different careers or different outlooks we all have that one thing that binds is together, CrossFit.
