    Ever since I was little, I had a tough time in contact sports like lacrosse or football because I was so undersized. I became fascinated with body building when I was junior in high school and the benefits it has for your body. I went from weighing 130 lbs as a sophomore in high school to around 180 lbs now, and actually lowering my body fat. I felt so good from my transformation, and I thought the only thing that would feel better would be to help others achieve their goals as well! There is no better feeling in this world to me than to see a client hit a goal that they have worked tirelessly for and improve their overall life through fitness!

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time I like to hike, cycle, swim, woodworking, sing, and volunteer at an animal shelter and a men's facility.

    • Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Physiology, Cleveland State University
    • Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology/Sports Nutrition, Concordia University

    My passion has always been health and fitness and helping others achieve their wellness goals. I played soccer for 17 years, played basketball in grade school and freshmen year of high school, played volleyball in grade school, and competed in the NPC women’s physique and women’s figure classes. I grew up in a very athletic family so my passion for fitness started at a very young age. When it came time for college I decided to pursue a degree in Exercise Physiology to expand my knowledge on the human body and how it works. Training has always been a rewarding career to me and being able to help motivate others and improve their quality of life is such a great feeling.

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time, I like to spend time with my son, husband and 2 dogs, workout, and watch movies or shows on Netflix.
