I heard about Crossfit from a friend that I work with. The intensity of the workouts really peaked my interest.
How long have you been at PCF?
It’s hard to believe, but this month marks 5 years at PCF.
What do you like about Port Crossfit?
First and foremost, the camaraderie amongst the members makes PCF a great place. The programming of the WOD’s and the support from the coaches keeps me motivated.
One word to describe yourself:

What would you like to accomplish?
My next goal is to complete handstand push-ups as well as improve my gymnastics movements all around.

Outside of PCF, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. We love being outdoors and working in our yard when the weather is warm.
What do you do for a living?
I am an assistant principal at John F. Kennedy Middle School right here in Port Jeff Station.
