I started my fitness journey at a young age. I always played sports and truly loved the strength and conditioning aspect of each sport. Once I stopped playing sports competitively I missed that group atmosphere and team environment. I became bored with my workout routines until I started this type of workout called CrossFit. After the first class I was hooked and I started coaching shortly after starting CrossFit. I am fortunate enough to have found my passion in life. I have extended my education with numerous CrossFit courses and personal training certifications and I love to learn how to help others meet their goals. 

In 2014, I went back to college and was able to lift on Lindenwood University’s Olympic Lifting team where I trained with exceptional athletes. I have learned so much, competing in meets across the country, and I have been able to take that knowledge and apply it to my CrossFit coaching. I am blessed to be able to coach and work with truly amazing people and educate them on how to live a healthier and happier life through fitness.

  • Masters degree

  • crossfit level 1

  • crossfit kids 

  • crossfit masters

I got started in CrossFit because my daughter, Lynette, kept encouraging me to come work out with her at the box she was coaching at. After seeing what Lynette could do, (and hoping someday to do half as good) I joined CrossFit and loved it from the start. In 2014, I got the opportunity to do the CrossFit Open in the Women’s Master’s 60+ and posted my scores. I was surprised – and pleased – that I made the top 200, which sent me on to the Master’s Qualifier, where I ended up number 110 in the world. This encouraged me to continue on, of course, and get better, faster and stronger. I took the next step and got my Level I Trainer’s certification in November of 2014 and my CrossFit Kids certification in March, 2015. I love working with the kids and I especially like working with senior Masters athletes, because older people need to know that not only can they can do CrossFit workouts, they can excel at them. 

Lynette and I shared a grand vision and are now co-owners of UnCharted CrossFit. All I can say is, how lucky am I that I get to be partners with my daughter in an enterprise we both love doing – who gets that opportunity in their lives? I am blessed to be working with talented coaches and athletes who care about our CrossFit Community – exploring the road less traveled.

  • CPR Certified 

My first experience in CrossFit was a little over six years ago when I was overweight and needed to change my lifestyle. I had started trying to get back in shape with personal training and I had quite a bit of success at that, but then I hit a wall. I knew I needed to find something that I would be more consistent at and that could be taught in a group environment. I found out about CrossFit through some friends and so I gave it a try and haven't looked back since! It changed my life, and I knew then I wanted to share this experience with others and help them feel that same life changing effect as I had. I started coaching and eventually opened a garage gym with my cousin, who shared the same passion. Lynette, my cousin and I grew the garage gym, and once we had the opportunity, we then knew it was time to go all in. UnCharted CrossFit is now a place where people can grow and learn more about themselves in an environment of like-minded people.

WEIGHTLIFTING & Crossfit COACH

Certifications:

  • B.S. Exercise science

  • NCSA-CSCS

  • Crossfit level 1

  • USA Weightlifting Level 1

  • cpr certified

I began weightlifting as a part of strength and conditioning for the various sports that I played in high school. My senior year I was thrown into Olympic Weightlifting where soon found that I excelled. I was later offered a scholarship for Olympic Weightlifting at Lindenwood University. I spent my freshman year and part of my sophomore year on the weightlifting team until I found a love for rugby. I played on the Lindenwood Rugby team for two years until I ultimately went back to my true passion of weightlifting. In my final year at Lindenwood I traveled to the University Nationals competition, where I won the gold for the 90kg class.

Outside of my athletic experience at Lindenwood I majored in Exercise Science and minored in Strength and Conditioning. I worked for the Athletic Performance department for three and a half years and recently obtained my CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) certification. I have found a love for CrossFit during my time here at UnCharted and am very excited to help people with their fitness journey through CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting!

certifications:

  • B.S Exercise science

  • Crossfit level 1

  • Crossfit level 2

  • crossfit gymnastics

  • USA Weightlifting Level 1

  • ACSM-CPT

  • cpr certified

I first found out about CrossFit by watching the CrossFit games on ESPN and immediately looking up what this 'sport of fitness' was all about. As a collegiate athlete I realized that while I loved competing, I loved the strength and conditioning side of sports even more. During my time as an exercise science student my favorite internship hours were spent in a CrossFit gym. The community I experienced there combined with constantly varied, high intensity, functional fitness had me hooked since 2014. 

I am an ACSM certified personal trainer and aqua aerobics instructor, but my passion is coaching CrossFit and being part of people's fitness journey. Whatever the goal- weight loss, training for competition, keeping up with grandkids- I love being part of the process. I feel so blessed to be part of the UnCharted family and work with such amazing people each day!

CRossFIt Coach

Nutrition specialist

certifications:

  • Crossfit Level 1

  • NASM - CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINING

  • NASM - FITNESS NUTRITION SPECIALIST

  • NASM - CERTIFIED CORRECTIVE EXERCISE SPECIALIST

I’ve been involved in the fitness community for 5 years now. Through college I developed a passion for helping others with their goals, whether it was getting better results in the gym, living a healthier lifestyle, having better relationships with friends and family and really just taking control of their lives. The reason I use nutrition as the basis for all these areas of life is because I wholeheartedly believe if you can really get a hold of your physical health, you will gain habits and tendencies that help you stay more disciplined in all areas of your life through the confidence and sense of well being you build!

My journey in fitness started out not necessarily on a happy note. When I was in high school, I was severely bullied for being shy, short and overweight. I hated myself and was in a deep depression. I am not sure what the catalyst was, but one day I realized I was tired of being bullied and being overweight. I wanted to be stronger and faster than my bullies so I could stick up for myself. The bullying gave me the drive and dedication to start running and hitting the gym every day.

      After high school, that drive (or emotional baggage) carried on with me. For 20 years, I was a gym rat, working out for 1-2 hours and then running several miles every day. I used all types of machines and was always trying to perfect my workout and get stronger. Even though I would change up my routine every couple of months, I found myself in a rut. About 8 years ago I tried this thing called CrossFit and I have been hooked every since.

 While being part of the CrossFit community, I fell in love with the coaching aspect of helping others strive to be their best. I had coached kids sports in the past, but this was a whole new level. I see it as not just showing someone the movements and yelling at them to go faster, lift that heavy stuff over there and “just do that movement but better.” It is helping them face their fears, becoming more flexible, improving their quality of life, developing better eating habits and building a discipline. I love to see people conquer their fears, crush a WOD, do a WOD RX for the first time and hit a PR. It gives me great joy (and a little bit of envy) to see them grow and surpass me in the WODs. So, I knew early on that I wanted to become a Level 1 coach.
