I am an Active Duty Captain in the U.S. Army, serving as a Military Science Instructor at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA). I am also both a CrossFit Competitor and a CrossFit Coach. I’ve been using Vitargo since I started CrossFit in 2012.
When I was new to the sport of CrossFit I quickly learned that nutrition was a huge part of staying competition ready and fueling my muscles to train and compete at the highest level. I first tried Vitargo when I won a sample in a gift bag from a competition, and I loved it. Then later in 2014, while competing in the Southern Amateur Grid League (SAGL) as a Barbell Specialist the founder at the time saw my performance and offered me the opportunity to become a Brand Ambassador. Our relationship became official from there.
I have competed on some of the biggest stages in CrossFit, to include 2013 Mid Atlantic Reebok CrossFit Regionals (Team), Wodapalooza Fitness Festival (2016 – RX Individual, 2018 RX Female Team), and the 2017 Kill Cliff Granite Games (Pro Female Team), just to name a few. I have also competed in the past six years in local competitions all over the Mid Atlantic and South East Regions. Throughout all my years of competition, Vitargo has been my go-to carbohydrate source both intra and post workout.
While I have focused this past year on coaching, teaching, and working with athletes, both in and out of the military, I am looking forward to competing again very soon. Some competitions I’m most looking forward to in 2020 are The Wodapalooza Fitness Festival, Kill Cliff Granite Games, and The Fittest Experience, among others.
Outside of the competition world, I am also a single mother, and a mentor and instructor for the next generation of Military Leaders, so I will continue to be the best example for them that I can be. That means staying healthy, and I will continue to trust Vitargo to help me stay fueled and ready to compete, train, and fight at the highest levels.
