I lived in Central Illinois all of my life and recently moved to Key Largo, Florida in April 2017. Even after 11 years, I preceded to work in a fast-paced environment as a store manager at Starbucks Coffee Company, where I ensured customer delight while leading a team to uplift and nurture the human spirit one cup at a time. I'm passionate about getting to know peoples' life stories by expressing their beauty, strength, love, and hope in a photograph. I started my photography/videography business in 1999, and have served well over 200 clients over the years. In my free time, I enjoy doing CrossFit, reading books and spending time growing deeper relationships with my friends and family. I started doing CrossFit at CrossFit Phoenix located in Crystal Lake IL in 2013. Recently, I decided to get my CrossFit Level 1, something that I have been wanting to do for the past few years. I have a coaching background in Division I springboard diving at Illinois State University. I have always loved being an athlete and after 4 years of doing CrossFit, I have found a passion for coaching again. The number one thing I love about CrossFit is the community of people. When we CrossFit together we bond together and I look forward to connecting, uplifting and coaching the community of CrossFitters at my new home, CrossFit Key Largo.
