What is the best advice that you have received in CrossFit?
I have received a ton of great technical advice, but I feel like the most impactful thing for me has been the encouragement from the coaches and other members. I still have to scale a lot of movements and sometimes I get bummed about not being able to do everything, but everyone is super encouraging and helps me remember that it’s my own journey. And that the smallest progress is still progress😊

Any advice of your own to offer up to someone new or thinking about joining?
Have patience with yourself

What is your favorite movement?
Movements that require you to lift/move your own bodyweight.

What is your favorite kind of music to workout to in the gym?
Anything I can dance to!

Any favorite artist, songs or genres that you would like to hear more of?
I feel like the coaches have a good variety, so keep doing what you’re doing!

I was born and raised in Louisiana, which is where the rest of my family lives! I graduated from LSU and moved to Atlanta in the summer of 2019 to work as a business consultant for Ernst & Young. Atlanta is also where I met Aaron, my husband as of this October😊. Outside of the gym and work, I enjoy spending time with friends, drawing, experimenting with the espresso machine and being outside.
