Do you collect anything?
I tend to collect workout routines. I like to use them for clients, I am always on the lookout! OH and uh, I like to collect training books I might be obsessed.
What is your most unusual talent?
Hmm…I can french braid my hair with my eyes closed and while walking and probably jogging…I think I could probably do most hair with my eyes closed and it would look okay. Haha! But up for interpretation.
What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
I had a double mastectomy a little over 2 years ago to be preventative about not getting cancer because I have a genetic mutation.
Why do you like working with Gnarly?
Their products are everything I stand for in outdoor sports and more! They nailed the nutrition aspect and really made everything have a great taste!
Outside of your respective sport, what are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my business, I have worked so hard to do what I do and I absolutely LOVE it and wouldn’t change anything about my clients, they are all SOO awesome and motivated!
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Definitely tacos. No questions asked. I may already mostly eat that…
Who is your hero? Why?
My mom, she has sacrifice so much in her life to make my brother and I have a good life. Her mom (my grandma immigrated from Guatemala) so she had to do everything from scratch.
Any advice for aspiring athletes?
Just don’t give up, I know sometimes it can seem pointless, but the perseverance and grit will take you far for the rest of your life.
I highly recommend the Ruby Red Grapefruit Hydrate. I am obsessed with it and it helps me drink water because sometimes I just want to drink something that tastes good, not just water. Also, the Vanilla Gnarly Whey is SO to die for. I have been baking with it to make crag and hiking snacks and it is the perfect taste and ratio of protein for long days.
