My journey in the fitness industry began 14 years ago as a group fitness instructor. I discovered I had a passion and talent helping others transition into, achieve, and maintain a healthy lifestyle so I decided to take my education a step further and become a Certified Personal Trainer. With a prior career in the culinary field, and knowing that exercise and nutrition go hand in hand, I pursued a nutrition certification with Precision Nutrition.
In September 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This news rocked my world! I continued to teach and work with clients throughout my recovery, those clients were some of my biggest cheerleaders throughout my journey! As I did research about fitness throughout treatment and sought advice from my doctors, I realized quickly that resources and trainers were limited. This inspired me to transition my training and education into cancer exercise fitness and I became certified as a Cancer Exercise Specialist and Breast Cancer Recovery Bosu Specialist through CETI.
I have been happily married to my best friend for 25 years and together we have two strong, smart, beautiful daughters. Their love and support is what got me through my cancer hiccup and it continues to drive me in my quest to help others!
