Co-owner Ute CrossFit East Draper and Coach

I received my B.A. in Exercise Sport Science and Nutrition from the University of Utah in 2003.  I also obtained many Nationally Accredited Certifications.  After more than ten plus years in the health and fitness industry, CrossFit has given me a new lease on life and has taken everything that I already knew about fitness to another level.  I chose to pursue a career as a CrossFit coach, because I am convinced that CrossFit provides innumerable and valuable benefits to  competitive athletes and individuals from all backgrounds and fitness  levels.  I know the CrossFit philosophy will help all those who are looking to improve overall health and mental toughness.

My goal as a coach is to connect with each person I train in a way that motivates and excites them to perform at their highest level.  I will encourage you in ways that will challenge you to get out of your comfort zone and elicit positive changes in all aspects of your physical health.   I am continually committed to expanding my skill-sets to allow me to adapt to and work with a wide variety fitness levels.   Injury prevention and optimized function of the body are fundamental to my training philosophy.

I am a strong believer that nutrition is the foundation for health and longevity and I love consulting with individuals helping pave a path for their personal nutritional goals.  I am a CrossFit nutritionist consultant and I have launched a successful nutrition business, Evolve Fitness, which can help anyone with life and food choices for optimum health.

I am a wife to a wonderful husband, Nick, who shares my same passion for Crossfit, and mother to two beautiful girls; Charly 2 ½ and Piper 1 year.  CrossFit allows me to have the energy that I need to play with my kids, run with my dog, and have mental and emotional clarity all day long. I am a lifelong athlete who played softball, rugby, and volleyball at the collegiate level.  I’ve also taken up running and competed in half and full marathons. When I am not coaching I enjoy restoring vintage furniture and baking Paleo/Zone Becca Bars that will curb any unhealthy craving. I also enjoy educating about alternative methods of heeling and medicine through doTerra oils.
