Get to know our Athlete in the spotlight! 

Age? 38
Kids? I have two sons, 16 & 18, who are also members of The Shipyard. 
I manage several dental offices on the Oregon Coast
I lived in about 15 states in my life, Coos Bay has been my home for the longest period of time. 
When and why did you start at The Shipyard? 
In October of 2015. I had decided to start with my youngest son; I wanted him to stay active and stay strong since he couldn't wrestle. 
What were your first thoughts when starting OnRamp?
After day one, I was like "I can't move! How am I supposed to do anything on Wednesday?!" I had no idea how out of shape I was. 
What do you feel has been your greatest area of growth since starting?
My greatest area of growth has been mentally. I didn't own a single thing I could work out in and I never left my house without being fully made up and dressed. I had never played sports or thought that I could compete with strong people. For the first year, I was really only doing what I needed to. There were so many times I wouldn't lift a heavier weight- I didn't think I could do it- and Jen would tell me that "it's all in my head". Any time I was keeping up with others I thought I must be counting wrong or that I scaled the workout too much. In the past few months, Ivan and Kelly were the couches that have pushed me and helped me see that I have so much more in me! I leave the box knowing I have accomplished something that most people wouldn't even try! This has made me a stronger mother, athlete, employee, and person all around. I have also gone grocery shopping in sweats several times too! :)
Who inspires you?
I am inspired by what every person at the box brings! Although my greatest inspirations are the other strong women that work hard and are examples to their families of what strong mothers and women look like. I strive every day to reach the level of Joy, Kay, Kara, and Risa. I love those ladies! The coaches are amazing too. If it wasn't for Ivan, I would have never ran out of excuses to not work harder and I'd probably still be doing ring rows if I hadn't gone to Kelly's classes.
Do you have any box specific goals for 2017?
To continue to get stronger and Rx more workouts. I want to do handstand pushups this year too! And maybe one day feel confident enough to do a competition.
