On February14, 2010, I broke my L4 Vertebrae competing in the 2010 U.S. Tae Kwon Do Open. I was told I may never regain full use of my left side. I spent months recovering and learning just to sit, stand, and walk once again. Once I was able to walk, I struggled with the use of my left leg and hip joint. Frequently, I lost all feeling and function of my left leg, severe pain and at times, numbness during rest and activity. The doctors told me that I had nerve damage I would struggle with for the rest of my life and I would never have full mobility and function with my left side again. They said, “I risked losing the ability to walk at an extremely early age.” In January 2012, I started CrossFit for the first time, and fell in love with it! During Strength and Conditioning, I found to my surprise, the ability to function at 100% capacity. I struggled for the first couple of months with severe pain, but slowly recovered. I now live pain free, no numbness, full mobility and function of the left leg and hip. Strength and Conditioning saved my life! I have now been coaching others in Strength and Conditioning since 2012. I love to help others achieve their goals and reach success, and I strive, always, to be the best coach I can be.
