Emily started crossfit 8 years ago when she was 17 after hearing her dad talk about it for months. He signed her up for fundamentals and crossfit very quickly became a non-negotiable part of her life. Growing up with diabetes, she always knew exercise was an important part of her health and crossfit was a perfect fit. Going to crossfit was often her favorite part of the day. Emily received her CF-L1 in 2021 after missing the gym for several months during the pandemic, and realizing how much of an impact it truly made. Emily is also a Registered Nurse. She enjoys coaching as much as she can when her nursing schedule allows.
