Where can you be found outside of the gym? What do you do for a living?
I work full time at Seattle Shakespeare as their Education Associate. I co-run the Ed department which brings Shakespeare and classical theater to schools and communities all over the state. I'm also an actor and a fight choreographer.
How'd you find out about FUELhouse?
Molly Scott and I used to be co-workers and we reconnected about four years ago. When she opened Fuelhouse, I was thrilled to be able to check it out. Pretty proud of my friend!
What makes you commit to training even on days you don't feel like it?
The knowledge and memory of what my body feels like if I DON'T train. I usually feel even more off if I don't do something physically active at some point during my day.
What's your favorite movement/workout?
It's been a blast learning to use kettlebells this summer. I love trying new things. Swings and get ups have been a chore to get the hang of, but I enjoy them.
What's one thing you'd like to accomplish at FUELhouse in the next year? How about in your personal life?
Continue to up my training goals and not plateau. Keep learning new things. And be able to do pull-ups like a superhero. Personal life? Ummm...what's that?
Tell us a little known fact about yourself.
I lost out on a part to Leonardo DiCaprio. Hint: a big boat was involved. Also, I'm shyer than I appear.
What's the most delicious meal you've eaten recently (it can be something you cooked or something you had at a restaurant)?
When I really want to indulge myself, I cook a great surf and turf.
What's your favorite thing about being a FUELhouse athlete?
Fitness is a really important part of my life and I'm always looking for people who have similar mindsets and passions. Fuelhouse definitely has that. It's a really wonderful community to be a part of. It's always positive. Even when the workouts are challenging, I never regret a single workout when I am done. Even when I am a sweaty mess
