About

I am strong. I am brave. I am honest. Friends and clients have been encouraging me for years to share my experiences and expertise. I’ve finally stepped out in courage to do this. I hope to provide inspiration – for those who need a vicarious experience to see through. I hope to provide education – for those who may be confused by the mess of information out there. I hope to provide motivation – for any and all who just need a little more umph! I am devoted to empowering others to make healthy choices that increase longevity and improve overall quality of life.

I have been a group fitness instructor and personal trainer since 2005 and hold my American College of Sport Medicine Personal Trainer certification, along with several group fitness certifications and specialties, including water exercise, step aerobics, and strength & resistance. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English-Scientific & Technical Writing and a master’s degree in Sport/Exercise Psychology. A recent graduate, I am working towards completing hours for certifications as a Sport Psychology Consultant and National Certified Counselor (NCC). I am also pursuing my Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) credential – becoming an EXERCISE BEHAVIORIST.

My passion for health and fitness grew from my personal struggles with weight, health, and injury from an early age. I will share my stories with you. Numerous physical struggles spurred a dedicated interest in using corrective exercise techniques to improve daily living and overall quality of life. I trained with one of the nation’s leading fitness experts and am passionate about “paying it forward” with the knowledge and experience I obtained. I was blessed time and time again! And then again!
