Juliet Starrett founded San Francisco CrossFit in 2005 with her husband Kelly, with the vision of creating a fit and supportive community. A lifelong athelete, Juliet launched her competitive sports resume in high school when her rowing team won the Californian State Championship. From there, Juliet rowed competitively at UC Berkeley and went on to paddle for the US Women’s Whitewater Team from 1997-2000, winning two World Championships and five national titles. In 2010, Juliet competed in the CrossFit Games, completing her first muscle-up at the competition, and then completing six more.
Before turning her attention to San Francisco CrossFit full-time, Juliet had a successful career as an attorney, practicing complex commercial litigation at Reed Smith for nearly eight years. She served on Board of Directors at GirlVentures for 5 years, a local non-profit committed to empowering girls through outdoor experiences, and she is the co-founder of Liquid Kayak Camp, which brings HIV+ teens to the American River for a week of community and whitewater kayaking instruction. She won the prestigious Jefferson Award For Public Service, known as the “Nobel Prize for public service” in 2007.
When she is not at the gym, Juliet enjoys spending time with their two daughters Georgia and Caroline, paddling, skiing, reading, and being outside.
