My love for fitness started on a military base 16 years ago (Ft Huachuca, AZ). After taking classes and clearly loving them, I was asked to teach, so I got my certification and began. This started a passion for me; I looked forward everyday to motivating people and getting them enthused to exercise. Getting members to be excited and have fun getting fit has continued to be my goal throughout my profession.
I love what I do, and it shines through every day to my clients and class participants.
I have participated in many races with clients, helping them reach their goals, and then motivating them to the finish line.
In my free time, I love running, hiking, yoga, and strength training. Outside of exercise, my passion is cooking. Creating delicious food that is also nutritious is so much fun. My family and friends agree!
