I have always been a fierce competitor, and an example to my female companions in every aspect of my life. As a member of the US Army, I served in active duty from 1998-2003 in the 82nd Airborne Division and later the 10th Special Forces Group at Ft. Carson Colorado Springs Colorado, I was the first female to participate in L.I.N.E. hand to hand combat training with her male counterparts and later became one of the first female instructor. A mom of two - Koa, 5, and Leilani, 9 - I work as a Group X instructor and personal trainer, and has recently taken on the challenge of becoming one of the most accomplished obstacle course racers in Colorado and the country. In my short time on the circuit, I have placed highly in nearly every event I participated in. One of my life long dream of becoming a professional athlete was made possible las month when I sign with Spartan Race to be one of their Female Professional Elite Athlete.
