I was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. I’ve been vacationing in Big Bear since I was a teenager and enjoy snowboarding, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, and hiking with my two pups.
My active lifestyle led me to CrossFit in 2012. I was looking for a community of like minded people to enjoy fitness with. I very quickly fell in love with CrossFit. I loved the community, the workouts, and the overall methodology behind CrossFit. I developed an interest in becoming a coach. I am a high school math teacher and I enjoy helping people. It seemed only natural to want to teach people about CrossFit because I absolutely love it and I am so passionate about CrossFit.
In March 2015 I started a six-month coach’s shadowing and training program at my home gym in Upland. I received my CF L1 certificate in October of 2015. Since obtaining my CF L1, I’ve continued to refine my craft as a coach. I’ve taken several other specialty training courses. Those include CF Sport Specific Application 01/2017, CF Weightlifting 02/2017, CF Gymnastics 02/2017, audit of CF Gymnastics (new material) in 02/2018 and Active Life Rx: Coach’s Assessment Seminar 09/2018. I am also currently in the process of completing Precision Nutrition’s Level 1 Certification.
I love coaching! It is so awesome to see people make progress and improve on their weaknesses. It makes me feel so good when I can support someone with accomplishing their own health and fitness goals. I’m super excited to work with the members at 7K CrossFit, as Big Bear and it’s community hold a special place in my heart!
