I was born in Abeline, TX and raised in Lake Travis, Austin. At Lake Travis High School, I played basketball, track, and was on the power lifting team; but wake boarding was my true passion. I even wake boarded on the Texas State collegiate team. After college, I began my personal training career at Gold’s and the YMCA, where I met my future husband, Josh. He fell in love with me and couldn’t keep his hands
In addition to coaching at Heroes, I take care of three beautiful girls. I have always been active; playing softball, volleyball and basketball. When I discovered CrossFit I knew it was the perfect fit for me. It helps me strengthen my weaknesses, grow in my strengths and everyday pushes my athleticism further. CrossFit has been a life changing experience for me.
I’m a a Level 2 CrossFit Trainer and co-owner of Heroes Crossfit. I have been involved and coaching CrossFit since 2009. I come from an athletic background of high school football, The United States Navy, and enjoy many fitness disciplines.
I was born and raised in Southern California where you can comfortably exercise outdoors 365 days a year! At a very young age, I played competitive soccer, and in high school I competed in cross-country, soccer, and track & field, and loved every minute of it. Track & field was my life for a short time at UC Irvine, but I eventually decided to focus on my studies instead.
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. I played roller hockey from about 12 years old until I was 17. In high school I played football and did track and field events but honestly wasn’t very good at either; I joined too late in the season and didn’t have a chance to build my skills. In college, things got a little crazy. I joined UC Irvine Crew (rowing) and immediately found something I could enjoy and excel in.
Like the cedar trees that stir up allergies, I am not from here and refuse to leave. Born in Ruidoso, NM but raised in El Paso, TX, I tried many sports but excelled at none. Not giving up on fitness, I tried many avenues to stay healthy and active:Zumba, kick-boxing, tae bo, and I even completed 2 Rock-n-Roll half-marathons. It wasn't until I was introduced to CrossFit that I found my passion, my strength, and my confidence.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, I grew up playing basketball, volleyball and track. Following high school I moved to Texas to attend the university of Texas. It is here in Austin I met my amazing and badass wife, Kindel, who introduced me to the sport of crossfit and I have been hooked ever since. I have been a part of the Heroes family as a member and coach for nearly three years now and love what we do and represent.
I have been involved in sports for the majority of my life including gymnastics, martial arts and swimming.

I received my Crossfit Level 1 in the Summer of 2014, however I have been involved with CrossFit since the Summer of 2011.I also plan on becoming certified in many other specialties during my time at Heroes.
I have been a part of CrossFit Valor for over a year now and absolutely love that I can call this place my home. I served in the United States Army where I first discovered CrossFit while deployed in Afghanistan, and absolutely fell in love with it. It wasn’t until I joined the Valor family that I would really understand the impact it would have on my life.
I grew up a multi-sport athlete and continued my athletic career as an All-American Lacrosse Player at the University of North Texas. I am a co-owner of Heroes Crossfit and have been coaching since 2010. I believe that fitness should be a family affair. Nothing make me happier than working out with my family and friends, along side our thriving fitness community at Heroes Crossfit.

Heroes Crossfit has an amazing sense of community and our members make every moment there truly enjoyable.
I spent eight glorious years leading Marines as an Infantry Officer in the United States Marine Corps. After my tour with Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children, I became disgruntled with my nasty civilian ways and began searching for a fitness program mentally and physically stimulating enough to engage my otherwise random, energetic personality.
