Jennifer Irwin is a retired Naval Officer turned full-time mother of three boys and CrossFit Level 2 Trainer. In addition to being a general fitness and health enthusiast, she played competitive basketball and volleyball and loves to snowboard, ski, hike and kayak and most recently figure skate!

 

Caring and dedicated leader who served as a Naval Officer for over twenty years with an extensive background in management, design review administration, budgeting and project and construction management. Jenn has a passion for helping others and working together to create a better environment for all. 

 

Jenn and her husband Chris Irwin established and owned the first CrossFit affiliate in the US Virgin Islands, Reebok CrossFit St Thomas from 2011 to 2015.  After leaving the islands she spent four years in Atlanta as the lead CrossFit Kids and Teens Coach at CrossFit North Atlanta and CrossFit 404 affiliates. After moving to Montana in 2018 she spent some time coaching  at Big Mountain CrossFit until two of her boys decided to learn to skate at GSA in 2020. A whole new world was introduced to the Irwins and a realization that there was a need for CrossFit kids to be incorporated into the skater's off-ice training. After coaching off-ice with a group of skaters for the next two years and being inspired by her own two boys, Jenn started taking adult skating lessons herself to better understand the movement patterns of a skater and what they need to better prepare and recover their bodies for what happens on and off the ice. Always looking for a challenge and finding areas to improve, Jenn Irwin joined the Board of Directors in 2021 and, in 2022, took on the role of Operations Director, working directly with Head Coach Kimmi Jeffers on all aspects of Glacier Skate Academy. 

 

Jenn’s primary goal is to foster and grow a welcoming, fun, healthy, safe learning environment that is all inclusive to the families of the Flathead Valley as they embark on their skating journey.
