Kate was born and raised in good Old MN! However she has had stints in Tennessee and Texas, but now calls Minnesota home! Kate has always been an active human. As a kid Kate played every sport she could in high-school but her love was basketball. Kate has two awesome brothers and lands right smack dab in the middle of this family of three kids!
Kate found CrossFit by way of Yoga. She had been practicing yoga after having her second child. She had met her first CrossFit coach at the yoga studio where he told her to come check out his gym… and she never never looked back. It was exactly what she was looking for!
Kate coaches CrossFit because she loves to help people! She absolutely loves to watch the transformation of people not only inside the gym, but more importantly, outside of the gym! It is so motivating and inspiring! Being able to celebrate a PR, a crushed goal of an athlete or even hearing how someone walked through a fear of theirs is the best feeling in the world! It gives her the chills just thinking about it!
When Kate is not at work or at the gym she enjoys spending time with her two favorite mini humans, leading her recovery and support group The Phoenix, and also being outside going on adventures!
