Other profession: Before I became the owner of AMRAP Method I was a full time OR-RN at Children’s Hospital of WI. Full time mom of FOUR, five including Joe 😉
Reason why you wanted to be a coach: I wanted to help people see the same success I did after I found CrossFit. I never stuck with anything before and really, I found myself with a lifestyle that didn’t make me happy so one day I decided to start working towards making myself happy. I found CrossFit, loved the idea and stuck with it. Along the way I found myself in the best shape of my life and the happiest I have ever been. I know if I could come from where I did, that others could find their happiness through CrossFit too. I wanted to use all the feelings and situations I went through with my own personal journey to relate to others and help them walk the same path, but this time with someone who knew exactly what they were going through. And not just me, but build an entire community who could look to each other to continue on as well!
Why is AMRAP Method special to you: It’s my second home. It’s filled with people I want to see and help succeed. Its filled with genuine, caring, and supportive mom’s, dad’s, siblings, grandparents, families, athletes, students, just every day down to earth people. The people I want to surround myself with, the people just like me and the people the opposite of me, yet we all just come together in this one place and work together as a family. Celebrate each other like a family.

Reason why you wanted to be a coach: 5 years ago I was looking for my calling in life and I found it with CrossFit coaching. I get to wake up every day and help people get better and achieve goals they didn’t think they could. Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.
Why is AMRAP Method special to you: AMRAP gave me and my family an opportunity to control our own destiny. It gives me and my wife more time together and more time with our family than when she was working 12 hour shifts at the hospital. Now, we get to go to all of our kids’ school functions, be home at night with them and be our own boss. AMRAP has changed our lives so much!
