The philosophy.

We believe women in the U.S. military have a seat at the table in defending America.  The Valkyrie Project supports the female warrior athlete through providing an unprecedented network of community, tactical physical training, educational forum, and functional apparel.  The Valkyrie Project enables the woman who will do today what others won’t, so she may do tomorrow what others can’t.

Why "Valkyrie?"

In Norse mythology, the Valkyries were Odin’s army of female demi-gods that had the power to influence battles and choose who would or would not be let into the gates of Valhalla after dying. To us, the Valkyrie represents the woman warrior's capacity to determine defeat or victory on the battlefield.

Meg has served in the US Army for 7+ years, both as a rotary wing aviator, and as part of Special Operations Forces (SOF).  She is a NASM and NSCA accredited personal trainer with over 9 years of coaching experience, ranging Crossfit to remotely located boot camps, and individual personal training. Meg competed in the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games Regionals, and has been published in The CrossFit Journal and Special Warfare Magazine.

 

Meg has witnessed, and believes in, the boundless potential that all humans possess.  She saw the need for more community support and precision athletic training for woman warriors after the US Armed Forces announced all jobs and schools would become available to women in 2016. She has a passion to support military women seeking to grow professionally through training and job specialties that were unavailable to them until recent years.

Meg believes that all it takes for today's military woman to reach her dreams is to be willing to put in the work, and push the boundaries physically, mentally and emotionally a little bit every day. Small bites of short-term success lead to long-term dreams realized. "Do today what others won't. Do tomorrow what others can't."
