I’m an Arlington Public Schools Kindergarten teacher, Navy spouse, and mother. I played competitive collegiate rugby and in the US Women’s Premier Rugby League. I started CrossFit in the 2015, joined Adaptation in early 2019, and earned my L1 certification in 2020. With a career and family, it can be a challenge to prioritize your own physical and mental wellbeing. What I value so much about my time at Adaptation Athletics is this; even when it feels strenuous and exhausting, I value how present I feel during workouts. It is impossible to think or stress about anything else but the work in front of you – it’ll often be the most rewarding and efficient hour of your day!
