Tell us about you!

I'm a wife to an extremely loving and supportive husband. A mom to two extremely different, but both wonderful, little girls (ages 6 and 3) as well as a 9 year old rescue pup. I'm an athlete who has battled countless "serious" sports injuries throughout the years. I love bringing people together and I love fun family activities. I strive to be a good role model to my kids, and I'm a work in progress when it comes to practicing what I preach (mostly in regards to stretching!). I love moving my body - absolutely nothing beats sweating profusely and being proud of the effort I've put into a workout. I love meeting new people, trying new things, being adventurous and I love good food!


What has your fitness journey looked like?

I've been an athlete my entire life - for as long as I can remember. I excelled at basketball and most of my life revolved around getting in shape for the basketball season. After 4 knee surgeries, I decided to hang up the basketball shoes and stick to running in a straight line. Three stress fractures and a herniated disc in my thoracic spine has me slowing down in my (not so) old age, which is very sad for my competitive spirit. I will always love moving my body, sweating and feeling the camaraderie of others around me, so I'll never fully give up racing, but I will have to tone it down, which I'm slowly starting to accept.


Where are you now in your journey?

Being a personal trainer/health coach, I'm awarded the opportunity to help others find their love of movement. When I'm hired as a coach, I form lasting relationships with my clients. They last longer than the sessions I'm with them, even years after we've stopped working together. The greatest gift to me as a health professional is when my clients are ready to go off on their own - to me that means I've done my job. They have the tools they need to continue on their journey without me and I can move on to assist the next crop of clients in finding their love of movement and feeling empowered and strong, both mentally and physically.
