I was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. I started sports at an early age, finding baseball and football as my favorites. I stuck with football until my sophomore year of college led to a season ending injury. Once football ended I found Crossfit in 2012, and the filled my competitive void. Over the years I fell in love with the methodology the people that filled the gym. I had no doubt it was what I wanted to do for living. I went to ASU and got my Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science. Being an owner of Camelback CrossFit has been one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me.

I am originally from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I was always involved in several athletics growing up, playing football, basketball, baseball, and track. After sports, I had a fitness void in my life. I was still an active person, but it was difficult to find motivation in the gym. I then discovered CrossFit through a friend while living in Texas in 2011. Instantly fell in love with the community fitness atmosphere that CrossFit provides. Working along others gives me the motivation I need each day. In 2013, I moved to Scottsdale, AZ and started coaching CrossFit. Over the years I have competed in several national level CrossFit competitions. In 2017, wanting to furthered my knowledge about exercise science, I decided to complete a Exercise Science Masters degree from Arizona State University.

I lettered my freshman year for the 400m dash and ran on varsity the remainder of my high school years ending with 4 league championships and 1 state championship.
Due to a hamstring injury my last year of track, I was unable to run track at the collegiate level. Instead, I turned towards intramural sports and the globo gym style of working out. I first heard of CrossFit through a college friend and gave it a shot. I was hooked on the community and the ability to see your hard work pay off. I wanted to help others achieve their goals which is why I decided to take the CrossFit trainer’s course. The most rewarding part for me is helping someone with a movement whether it’s lifts or gymnastics and seeing the light turn on in their head when they get it.

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and currently am enrolled at Scottsdale Community College furthering my education in health and fitness. I have no athletic background, so when I found crossfit, it completely changed my life. I began my crossfit journey two and a half years ago, and my passion for fitness has grown bigger every year!
I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin. I played competitive ice hockey for 8 years but played division 3 soccer my freshman year of college. I was also active in the weight room and loved to compete. When I stopped playing soccer and moved to
Arizona, I found CrossFit. I am finishing my final semester at the University of Arizona for Nutritional Science before I continue to my masters to get my registered dietitian license. I’ve experienced the benefits of proper nutrition on performance. Helping people make sure they are getting the appropriate nutrition to maximize results in their training is my passion.

Never being on a team growing up makes me proud to call Crossfit my sport of choice. One thing Crossfit has given me is a huge boost of confidence in myself.

I was born in Northern California but grew up in Northeast Ohio. I was a 3-sport athlete in high school and attended the University of Akron and The Ohio State University. I was always involved in athletics after college, either playing or coaching. After moving to Scottsdale in 2009 I was introduced to CrossFit through a good friend and loved the fitness diversity, competitive nature and accountability that CrossFit offers. Most of all, the community spirit, especially at CBCF, is what I love the most. I travel for work and have dropped-in at over 100 CrossFit boxes worldwide. I can assure you that your CrossFit experience at CBCF will be one of the best you’ll encounter! I have competed in several CrossFit competitions and was a Masters CrossFit Games Age Group Quarterfinalist in 2021, 2022 and 2023 and Masters Legends Championship Finalist in 2023.
