I have been active in sports all of my life. I played all types of sports in my younger years but as I grew older I found my true love with baseball. I was able to play at the highest levels in baseball at Bainbridge Island High School where we played for the State Championship at Safeco field. I also played for Santa Barbara CC where we set team winning records and reaching California regionals. On a personal level, I achieved all metro conference and all state teams and again all conference team in college.
After College I moved to Huntington Beach where my real journey in CrossFit began. A block away from my apartment was a CrossFit gym named CrossFit Redemption. I had seen CrossFit on ESPN that summer and was very interested. I walked in and introduced myself and a day later I started working out. It was some of the most intense and hard work I had ever done in my life and I LOVED IT! I wasn’t very strong or in shape but I knew I had found my passion.
I earned my CrossFit training certification with one of the top CrossFit games athelete, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, as my instructor. I also was blessed to intern under two amazing coach’s. Coach Gabe Baltadano who made it to the CrossFit games in 2007 and Greg Sand who was a USA strength and conditioning coach for the Olympic Skeleton and Bobsled team. The information I obtained from those two could not be taught out of a book or on a video.
I opened Agate Pass CrossFit Monday August 19th, 2013. The gym has grown to be an amazing community of people who enjoy what they do everyday. I take pride in helping people accomplish their goals and make sure each and every athlete is achieving the best experience on there journey to better fitness.

I grew up playing completive sports, dance, and cheerleading. After having a child, I found myself losing my ambition for health and fitness. I tried lots of fad diets and went to an athletic club. I had no idea how the machines worked, let alone set up good rep schemes. I found myself unsatisfied with my workouts and the lack of results.
Almost three years ago I took some advice from my older brother, who had been CrossFitting for eight years and decided to join Agate Pass CrossFit. Since then my entire life has changed. I wanted to absorb all the knowledge I could and help others achieve their own goals, utilizing my Level One Trainer Certification. Since I started my CrossFit Journey I have: completed a Spartan Super that was 11 miles with 25+ Obstacles, run 5 & 10k’s, competed in several CrossFit competitions, and become a Momentum Certified Jump Rope coach. Agate Pass can be an escape from the stresses of life for an hour (or maybe more ) of your day and be your happy place away from home. Come join in on the fun and let us show you the road to a happy, healthy, fitter you. Strength is beauty!
I discovered CrossFit in the spring of 2013, shortly after moving back to the PNW from Jackson,Wyoming where I spent 20 years living the “ski bum, mountain town lifestyle”. Is pent all of my free time in the mountains- climbing, trail running, hiking,snowshoeing, xc and downhill skiing. I am an endurance sport junkie and I find that CrossFit gives me the skill, strength and stamina to accomplish the variety of sports I enjoy. I love that no day at the gym is ever the same!
When I am not at Agate Pass CrossFit you can find me running, exploring our great outdoors and spending time with my daughter, Avery and her horse, Wyatt.
