The Owner and Head Coach of CrossFit Worthy. I started doing CrossFit in 2008, earned a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from CMU, played 4 years of Collegiate Rugby, and opened the doors of CrossFit Worthy in 2012. I have earned my CrossFit Level 1 & 2, CrossFit Kids Certifications, Bronze and Silver certifications with Strength Specific Seminars for Olympic Lifting, and a Level 1 USAW Certification. I enjoy teaching fitness, coaching athletes, sharing my nutrition knowledge and passion of wellness with everyone!
The Owner and a Coach at CrossFit Worthy, and married to Jeremy. I have a bachelors degree in Early Childhood Development and was a teacher to many children before CrossFit Worthy. I didn’t start doing CrossFit, or really working out at all, until 2012, when we opened CrossFit Worthy. I have earned a CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Kids certification as well as Bronze and Silver level certifications through Strength Specific Seminars for Olympic Lifting. I love making exercise and fun come together and I enjoy helping people in their everyday lives.
I started as an athlete at CrossFit Worthy when I moved to Mount Pleasant in 2013 to work as the Assistant Director, Fitness & Wellness at Central Michigan University. I received my Masters Degree in Sports & Recreation Management from James Madison University. I was a competitive swimmer and a collegiate All-American at Denison University. I earned certifications for CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, Bronze Level Strength Specific Seminar, USAW Sports Performance Coach, American Council on Exercise Personal Trainer, TRX Group Suspension Training, and Schwinn Cycling Instructor. I am passionate about developing others and helping people achieve their fitness and wellness goals.
I came to Worthy in 2013 after 10 years of cross-country running. I loved running, but I wanted to be a more rounded athlete. Gymnastics and Olympic weightlifting are my favorite CrossFit elements. I studied physics and foreign languages at Kalamazoo College before realizing people were my true passion. Coaching
allows me to interact with great people everyday and experience the shared joy of their accomplishments. I have my CrossFit L1, as well as my bronze and silver Olympic lifting certification from Strength Specific Seminars. My ideal CrossFit class is fun, uplifting, and high energy!
