Tell us about your life and family outside of CrossFit

I’ve been married to Greg for 19 years. We have two girls Annika (15) and Ava (13). There is a lot of driving kids around! Annika will get her license this year which terrifies me to death. I’ve run my own portrait photography business since 2011 and love my job. I specialize in families and high school seniors. I also shoot for a local boutique and in addition to managing their social media, you can find me working in the store every now and then (Elegant Details Boutique). I cherish my faith, my family and my friends and am thankful for every day God gives me!
