Time with us at Verge: 

    I have been with Verge for 4 months.    

Favorite thing about Verge: 

    My favorite thing about Verge are the coaches and fellow athletes. The       coaches are very supportive and knowledgeable and there is a great spirit of community with the other athletes.  

Greatest accomplishment:  

    I finally did a double under - totally surprised myself.  

Favorite movement/lift:  

     I really like the box jump as I can feel the lightness in my body. Also I have found that if I am doing them after another move I just suck it up and do it. No thinking allowed.

One goal you are currently working on:  

    I want to do a 20" box jump by the time I hit a BIG milestone birthday in August.

One thing people might not know

    I'm a yoga teacher with certifications in Hatha and Kundalini yoga.
