Kathleen is originally from Defiance, Ohio and moved to Seattle, Washington in February 2015. Kathleen has always had an athletic background including competitive golf, softball and swimming, and started CrossFit when she moved to Washington. Her passion for CrossFit has continued to grow throughout the years. She has always enjoyed helping, teaching and motivating others to become the best possible version of themselves, and that motivated her to get her Level 1 Trainer and begin her coaching career. Kathleen finds many rewards in coaching, such as the happiness and fulfillment she experiences when she can help an athlete reach their personal goals, get stronger, and gain confidence.
Outside of the gym Kathleen is a full time Operating Room nurse and is in graduate school for her Masters of Science in Nursing for Family Nurse Practitioner at Gonzaga University. Kathleen also enjoys hiking, snowboarding, biking, and relaxing with her boyfriend (Justin) and two dogs (Lincoln and Ellie).
