I have always been a mover. I started my fitness journey as a professional dancer. After dancing for many years while working part-time doing customer service at a gym, I was asked if I was interested in pursuing personal training. I had hardly lifted a weight in my entire life. I said yes and my life changed forever.
I have been a personal trainer for 6 years. I started my private training business 2 years ago. In 2021, I received my Masters in Sports & Performance Psychology. I think mental health is just as important as physical health, and I incorporate that idea into my sessions. I take the time to get to know my clients, and establish lasting relationships with them. My goal as a trainer is to help my clients not only reach their fitness goals, but to develop a mindset in which they know nothing is impossible.
I love feeling strong, unstoppable, and healthy. I want my clients to feel the same way. I have struggled with body image, times when I felt like I couldn't do it, times when I felt weak. I have learned it's all in the mind. Strength comes from within. I keep my Wonder Woman mentality with me always, and I'll help you get there too.
