Haley Lawrence
Director of Operations
 
 
"I am a mother and an Air Force veteran. I spent 7 years active duty as a medic. Although I'm originally from Illinois, I've lived in Florida, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and now currently reside in Austin, Texas. Dealing with some significant medical issues these past few years, I developed a love for the iron and lifting heavy. I've competed in powerlifting and have also ran a full marathon and a handful of smaller races. I love good music, good food, good craft beer, and of course good coffee."
