Positivity sparks success in everything
we do. High energy and fun is how I bring this positivity to fitness. While
group fitness was my start, I thrive working one on one with individuals to
reach specific goals. It is never too late to join the party and I enjoy
sharing my passion for health and wellness with people looking to start a new
exercise program or reach a new level of athletic performance. I am always
looking for new challenges and to try something new, so I like to introduce
variety into my sessions. My specialties include endurance training, sport
specific training, and weight loss.

passion for personal training comes from finding my own strength in the past
few years and doing things I never thought were possible! I believe that in
order to work towards a healthy body, one must also work on their heart and
mind. I want to help make that special connection. I love digging deep and
helping people find the drive within themselves that helps push them to the
next level. I’m here to help you get there. Our sessions will be fine tuned to
what movements and needs you have at that moment, whether that be basic
movement patterns, cardio improvements, or overall strength. No matter where
you are on your fitness journey, I can help you figure out how to get to the

I'm a licensed personal trainer with a background in nutrition and wellness cooking. My own struggle with weight and health for much of my life inspired me to pursue a degree in nutrition and attend culinary school focusing in a plant-based diet and healing modalities. Along the way, I realized health and wellness come from more than what you eat - what you do with your body is just as important as what you put into it. I want my energy and contagious passion for fitness to inspire you to reach your goals and have fun doing it!

Fitness and healthy living are lifestyle choices that inspire me to help others achieve
their own personal goals. I have worked for years with youth and high school basketball players, but I love connecting with all kinds of people and finding out what motivates them. The most important part of fitness for me is finding a personal reason to reach for that goal and then to have someone to push you farther than you thought possible. I have experience in sports conditioning, body weight, and at-home styles of training to offer and incorporate.
