meet the coach
My athletic background began in the Fine Arts. I began dancing at a very young age falling in love with the discipline, dedication, and passion that encompassed the dance world. The endless and relentless perfecting of my craft. The passion and purpose that I would literally breathe into movement and space was something profound to me. I competed nationally, holding numerous scholarships around the United States and got to travel around the world, I became fascinated with the process; setting goals, and working hard to achieve them.
While practicing Dental Hygiene for the past decade, I focused my passion for health and fitness into weight training and nutrition, becoming a Nationally Qualified bikini competitor in the US and Canada. Weight training holds a special place in my heart, and I feel that it is a perfect metaphor for life and overcoming one’s struggles. I love having goals and pushing past my preconceived limitations.
I firmly believe that we are worth taking action to want more for ourselves and to BE more for ourselves. Whether it is to have more energy and endurance daily or to plow past strength and body composition goals. We have the power to choose for ourselves, to grow and to get more out of life!
I have always been passionate about helping others through education, support on achieving a higher level of wellness that will be maintainable throughout life. I have both formal education and personal experience that help me in being an effective coach for people with a wide range of health and performance goals.
