Tell us about yourself
I have been a CrossFit coach for almost 10 years and I am passionate about helping others. I have been happily married to my firefighter husband Aaron for 14 years and I love that we can work together and still like each other. I have 2 kids, a son Braxton (18), and a daughter Sarah (9). We are from Steinbach but lived in Regina for 10 years where we started and ran CrossFit Regina, and moved back to our hometown of Steinbach 2 1/2 years ago to be closer to family.

Why did you start Stone Brook Strength?
I wanted to create a private atmosphere for people who wanted to workout but were maybe too shy to start at a gym in a crowd of people.

What is your favorite Workout/Lift?
Definitely the Clean & Jerk. It feels so powerful to take a weight from the ground to your shoulders to overhead.

What is your favorite skill/movement that you have learned at CrossFit?

Pull-ups

What is your “goat”?
Push-ups
