Biography

I came to J5 CrossFit pretty much the day it opened. I followed my personal trainer from a globo-gym where he was training me in CrossFit style – when I got to unleash the restraints of the “gym rules” I was hooked! Then as J5 began to grow and I was able to workout along side other members I realized I would never workout any other way!!

When I’m not at J5 for various different things, I own an event planning company. I started my business in 2002 after encouragement from friends and family and to have control over my schedule when I had kids. To allow Jordan to fully focus on the training, programming and customer service of J5 I offered to take over the events, accounting and daily operations.

I love everything about J5 and the community and therefore I’m honored to be a small part of creating a place where people can find strength and drive they never knew they had!

Favorite CrossFit Athlete?
Kara Webb & Brooke Ence. First, I think my body type is most like these ladies and therefore they are my image role models. Second, they are just cool chicks!

To stop time. There is so much I want to do and not enough time to do it.
Tell us one thing about yourself not related to CrossFit?
I used to work in Civil Engineering. I was a drafter and land surveyor. Some days I really miss being outside with 50lbs of pack on my back, hacking my way through the woods.
