She was involved in basketball and track in high school, and was a member of the Oregon State rowing team her freshman year of college.

After graduating from OSU, Jessica was accepted to LSU on a full assistantship where she completed a master’s degree in reproductive physiology in 2009 and a master’s in teaching in 2012.  She is currently working as a high school Biology teacher.

A message from Jessica:

CrossFit over the last four years has become more then just workout, it’s about the community and the friendships that I have gained. I love spending my afternoons and Saturday mornings at the box, coaching and WODing next to athletes that are pushing themselves for the next rep, for the next round. I have enormous  amount of respect for every single person who has ever completed a WOD no matter his or her athletic ability because it takes a huge amount of mental strength to keep moving. The box is where we work not only on becoming strong physically but mentally as well. Crossit has taught me that failure is okay as long as you use it to motivate your success.
