I’m a working mom and wife and understand the difficulties of making yourself a priority in a hectic and chaotic life. Being able to share my expertise with people in similar situations regardless of age, fitness level or gender is very important to me! I work with clients with many different goals, from weight loss to muscle and strength building, to people that don't know how to properly feed their bodies for maximum results.
I am passionate about helping people reach their health and fitness goals and getting my clients to do things they never thought possible. Education on exercise and diet is important and watching people create new habits from our work together is my ultimate goal!
Experienced in helping clients with realistic goal setting, weight loss, strength gain, general health goals, and movement education in barbell training, kettlebell training, and calisthenics.
I use an online platform to handle scheduling, which includes optional calendar integration, reminder emails, and easy advanced cancellations and rescheduling.
This one of the many reasons I decided, years later, to become a personal trainer myself—to create supportive environments where we honor our bodies through strength, endurance, and flexibility.
