Interests:

Spending time with my boys, Joziah and Malik, and my husband, Omar.  I enjoy teaching dance and acrobatics to all ages, and I have had the wonderful opportunity to travel the world doing so.  As much as I LOVE to travel...I HATE packing!!  I started doing CrossFit as a way to get in shape after having my first son.  I quickly fell in love with all aspects of it, mostly because I am super competitive and I love the camaraderie.  CrossFit has reeled me in, and I am honored to be a part of this growing family.
