My passion is to educate and motivate people toward a healthier lifestyle, one that is both effective and sustainable through both exercise and nutrition.
I am a Dayton, Ohio, based Fitness Professional certified through the American Council on Exercise as a Certified Personal Trainer.
Outside the gym, as a mom of 5 children, I know firsthand how busy life is. How challenging it can be to get a handle on your physical fitness. My journey has not just been about being physically fit, but HOW exercise can change your life. Help you through the challenges of life.
I first became certified through ACE in 1996 and worked part time as a personal trainer until one of my sons died in 1998. That changed my world forever. For me, exercise became a reason to get out of bed in the morning, to get up and face the world. To fight the depression. The gym, my workouts, was where I was at peace, if only for the moment. It helped me feel stronger, not just physically but mentally, emotionally. My passion is the mind/body connection that can come from working out, getting your body moving and focused.
