Background

I grew up competitively playing all different types of sports (soccer, gymnastics, tennis, field hockey, diving, and swimming), but ultimately stuck with competitive swimming for the Lakeside Seahawks until I was recruited to swim Division 1 for Ohio University. During my 13 years of competitive swimming experience, my accomplishments included winning the high school state championship and competing at Junior Nationals, competing at MAC championships during college, and setting many state records during my time with the Lakeside Seahawks. I found CrossFit after retiring from the sport of swimming and fell in love with the inclusion and empowerment the sport has on nutrition and lifelong fitness. I entered recovery from a lifelong struggle with anorexia and depression in 2013 and have been strengthening others, as well as my own, relationship with food ever since. I look to continue furthering my nutrition knowledge and providing a valuable resource for members to enhance both their personal fitness and nutrition journey.
