Melissa grew up in Houston, TX where she competed as an elite gymnast and played on a Gold Level fastpitch softball team. She ended up with a 4-year scholarship to play softball in college where she majored in Finance. While Melissa spends most of her time working in corporate America, in her free time she enjoys spending time with family, snowboarding, hiking and backpacking, and time at the beach with her husband Mike and chocolate lab Norm. Melissa started CrossFit in early 2020 because she wanted a stronger body to support her love of adventure and sport as she got into her 40’s. Now CrossFit is one of her favorite past times. She holds numerous university and NCAA hitting records, and she credits her passion for the physics of movement with helping her produce a power swing from a tiny body. This passion carries over to her coaching in CrossFit today. She loves competing with her friends, and her passion is helping members discover new growth and abilities that lie on the other side of discomfort.
