I was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania and grew up playing competitive sports including soccer, volleyball, basketball (until I stopped growing), cheerleading (sitting on the bench…that’s a story to be shared over a beer or two) and any other sport I could talk a coach into letting me try. I moved to Ohio to pursue a career in supply chain and attended The Ohio State University. At 5’4, my chances at being a hitter on their volleyball team was pretty low so I turned my focus to school. During and after college, I picked up activities like running and weightlifting, but I always missed the competitive element of team sports and became bored of the same old workout routines. When I moved to Minneapolis, a girlfriend recommended CrossFit and after turning her down several times, I finally caved in and signed up for an intro class. I was hooked and signed up for membership that same day.
Five years later, I am excited to pursue my passion for CrossFit by opening up a gym of my own. I love that CrossFit is infinitely scalable and inclusive of all athletic levels. The CrossFit community is unlike anything I have experienced, and I am excited to build a strong community at Icehouse. And the best part? No bicep curls. No seriously.

I was born and raised in Carlock, Illinois (so small that it’s barely on the map) and I was the kid that would never come inside. I played five sports during high school (softball, basketball, volleyball, track, and soccer) and being nearly 6 feet tall by the time college came around, I realized that basketball was the way to go. I attended Bradley University, majoring in basketball but graduated with a degree in History.
After college, I had a short layover in St. Cloud, Minnesota to knock grad school off my to-do list. I pursued a Master’s degree in Exercise Science and Sports Management, and it was then I finally found my calling and something I was passionate about. After graduating, life took a sharp left turn towards corporate America where I traveled and worked out at a global gym (insert sad face.) In 2009, the CrossFit rays of light shined down and I took my first class, where I tackled the Filthy 50. Through this sport, I have met so many great people, lifted heavy things, and have had the opportunity to participate in some local competitions. I have been a CrossFit athlete for five years and a coach for two, and now a gym owner! Seeing people do things they never dreamed were possible when they walk through the door is what makes CrossFit so special. I am excited to build strong athletes and a strong community at CrossFit Icehouse.
