I live in Addison, PA with my husband and 3 children.
I own/operate Schoolhouse Gym & Studio which facilitates Schoolhouse Tae Kwon Do. I have achieved my 1st degree black belt in Chung Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do, and have recently taken interest in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and MMA training. Those types of activities conflict with my lifting at times, especially as I am a hard gainer, but I love a challenge. My biggest challenge at this moment is studying for my personal trainer certificate as I homeschool my children.
I attended my first OCB event at the 2016 Catonsville Conquer and made it a goal to prepare for my first organized show that coming fall. I chose the Chesapeake Classic and could not have been happier with a first experience. I was very pleased with the friendliness and courtesy of the organizers and staff. It was a huge learning experience and will have me better prepared for my next time around.
