Owner + Founder, Certified CrossFit Instructor
BA, MA, MA
I opened Verdant CrossFit in 2014 in the old Newt and Harold’s location at 1021 S Broadway Boise, ID. In 2017 we bought CrossFit Refinery and moved Verdant into our new space at 528 S Americana. Verdant has been a labor of love and we now have over 300 members. I learned olympic lifting with Sean Waxman and in Russia. I ran cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track at Amherst college for 12 seasons. Before opening Verdant CrossFit I taught Russian and Russian literature at the University of Southern California and before that I taught high school in Mississippi. I was in Russia at various times with the state department and national science foundation. Here at Verdant, we are proud to be a CrossFit affiliate.
