I am originally from Southern California, but currently live in Austin, Texas. I started Parkour nearly 2 years ago, when my husband, Micah Scarbrough, introduced it to me. Initially, Parkour got my attention because it has some similar aspects to gymnastics, as I am a former Elite gymnast. However, Parkour quickly became a passion of mine when I discovered the liberating aspects of being creative and having one’s own style that is not defined by rules.
I have a bachelors degree in French, and I am the Women’s Gymnastics Team Director at Champions Westlake. I love to work with kids and teach them how to become successful not only as athletes, but as individuals. However, I still crave to learn and challenge myself, which is why Parkour is very important to me.
Training Parkour is such a fun and liberating experience. You do what YOU want to do. You be creative how YOU want to be. You challenge your mind and body to get over obstacles, work through fear, and trust yourself and the abilities that you have been given. Parkour helps make you a stronger person! My knowledge of what the body can do with movement has broadened exponentially, since I have discovered Parkour. Parkour has helped give me a greater appreciation for nature and the abilities that God has given us.
I am a WFPF athlete affiliate, a member of Team Traverse Parkour in Austin, Texas, and have performed for the NCAA Final Four, and been invited to the Red Bull Art of Motion in Detroit, Michigan. I am very fortunate to have the best support from my husband, team, Texas community, and family/friends.
My goals are to give back some of the blessings I have been given, by getting involved in the Parkour community. I would like to help others, especially women, discover Parkour and the positive aspects that it brings.
