She studied Motion Design and Animation in college and worked in the field for 10 years. In 2009, she was introduced to CrossFit. She went through a transformation of her own losing 30 lbs of college weight along with gaining muscle mass in the process. She slowly made her transition from a desk job as a graphic artist to fitness full-time.
