Val has always had a passion for sports and physical fitness. In high school, she played both volleyball and basketball and won New Mexico State Basketball Championship in 2016.
She began CrossFit in August of 2018 and received her first certification in March of 2019. Val is currently in school for her paramedic degree and is working on getting her EMT basic. During her free time, she enjoys doing outdoor activities like biking and hiking and spending quality time with her friends and family. One of Val’s greatest joys is watching other people’s confidence levels grow when they exceed their own expectations by completing an exercise or workout that they once thought was impossible.
