A Texas girl, Teresa played every high school sport she could. She was introduced to CrossFit through a friend in nursing school and readily embraced the escape from the globo gym. With her obsessive personality, it wasn’t surprising how much she immediately loved CrossFit. As with so many athletes in this sport, she was most overcome by the community. There was, and still is, something very special about pushing your own limits in the company of amazing people.
She expanded her CrossFit experience in 2010 and began coaching. Her favorite moments are seeing athletes hit a PR, climb a rope for the first time, or do something they once thought was impossible. She especially enjoys team workouts and watching one athlete give everything they’ve got for another person.
As a mother, wife, friend, athlete, and coach…“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.”
