She enjoys competing and recently took home gold in her gi division at the Denver International Open IBJJF Championship 2024. She is passionate about all things health and wellness and earned her bachelor's degree in Health Care Science in 2017.
She loves learning and helping others learn, especially kids and those who are new to jiujitsu. As a yoga instructor, she also loves offering yin postures for friends with bjj injuries. She loves smash passing, the mounted triangle, and relentlessly hunting the back. When she's not on the mats, you might find her mountain biking, skiing, bouldering, backpacking, weightlifting, or helping people buy and sell real estate.
Girls in Gis is a community of women and girls in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that come together through donation based training events which are hosted, instructed, and attended only by women and girls. It's our time to come together and take over the mats! Women and girls of all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend from any academy affiliation. We welcome beginners and don't require any experience. Our events are designed for 100% participation. However, we do allow parents or chaperone to accompany underage participants as spectators.
Our events are donation based in order to provide equal opportunity to everyone. Your donations provide paid teaching opportunities for our guest instructor(s) and help to expand and make Girls in Gis programs such as our events, our leadership program and instructional training programs and our scholarships possible. If you are not able to make a donation please contact us and we will work with you so that you are able to participate.
You can also purchase a GIG t-shirt, patches and more GIG merchandise with your donation. All orders can be picked up during the event.
COST: $20 Min Donation. All Donations Welcome.
