I have always had a passion for pushing my limits both physically and mentally while helping others do the same. I had a friend that had his life cut short when we were young and this dramatically changed the way I looked at my health. I just assumed I'd live forever and took my health and abilities for granted. My focus changed to the quality of my life and not the quantity. What good is living to 90 if I can't enjoy it along the way? I have been passing along this passion to everyone on my path on this journey for 21 years as an elementary teacher, running coach, and CrossFit coach.
My purpose for coaching is not only to be a role model of physical and mental health. It is also important for me to show that progress is more important than perfection. I continue to learn each day how to improve in these areas and can hopefully pass this along. I hope to get others to have the perspective that there are people out there that would love to be in their shoes no matter where they are in their journey of health and fitness. "The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." - Jack London
