Sammi has been a lifelong athlete, participating in several sports throughout high school and going onto play college basketball at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

She soon began her coaching career after college, coaching high school volleyball and basketball.

Her passion for CrossFit began in 2016. Over the course of a few years of consistency in the gym learning and developing skills as an athlete she decided that coaching CrossFit was another way to leave an impact on those around her. She completed her  CF-Level 1 in October of 2018.

As much as she loves being an athlete herself, she ultimately loves seeing people of all ages reach their goals and choose to live their best lifestyle.

Aside from coaching group classes on a daily basis, Sammi is the CrossFit Kids coach at CrossFit Petoskey, CrossFit Gymnastics coach, and one of CrossFit Petoskey's in-house Nutrition Coaches.
