I am a former dancer/cheerleader. So I was certainly surprised when God blessed  me with FOUR little boys. I am a pediatric nurse. I’ve spent most of my career working in oncology/bone marrow transplant and now am working in the neonatal intensive care unit at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. As if my life wasn’t busy enough, I am back in school working towards my doctorate and while also getting my Masters to be a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, all thanks to the unconditional love and support from my incredible husband who also happens to be my high school sweetheart.

My life is a little crazy and working out is the best kind of stress therapy I can find. I was doing FitZone at Canyon Fitness and really felt like I found my niche there. Just as I was finally seeing some changes in my body, canyon fitness was sold to new owners and they canceled FitZone. I knew I couldn’t go back to doing the gym on my own. I needed something that would push me but I have a pretty serious back injury from cheering in college and wasn’t sure if I could do CrossFit. I talked to Korby who really encouraged me to just give it a try.

I was so nervous for my first class! My friend Jill Schultz has been doing CrossFit at Xs in Parker for years, drove all the way to Castle Rock to do my first few classes with me. It was my first taste of the CrossFit community. I will never forget how she did that for me.

It was not easy to leave my FitZone community. I really wasn’t sure I would ever find that again. Everyone at Loop has been so welcoming. I am just beginning to realize how incredibly lucky I am to live so close to such an elite facility. Matt and JT are so knowledgeable and have been incredibly patient as they teach me the fundamentals of CrossFit. They place a huge emphasis on safety and still manage to push me harder than I’ve ever been pushed before.

I really feel like finding CrossFit Loop has been a blessing. I am so thankful to be part of the Loop community?
