About Me:

A degree in Economics from U of I led me to a short-lived career in banking before changing gears and going into education and social work.  Today I’m fortunate to love what I do as a high school counselor and social worker in private practice.

After the prodding of two friends, I found CFB and, like most of us, was hooked.  Coupled with Paleo, CrossFit has impacted virtually every part of my life.  I’m grateful now to be a part of UGP in a way that might be useful to others on their journey in and out of the box. 

Past Sports/Events/Activities:

Seems I’ve always been in sports of some kind – swim team at 6, football at 8, and grew up on wrestling mats because my dad was a coach.  In high school I opted for football and swimming, two sports which couldn’t be more opposite.  Since college it’s been a haphazard mix of globo-gyms, running (marathon PR 3:22) and yoga.  I’ve also coached high school football and basketball as well as my kids’ baseball, basketball and football teams (the latter more resembled herding cats).

Inspirations:

My two boys.  Little do they know how much they keep me in line.
