Fitness Trainer, Founder
I started my fitness career in 1998 teaching kickboxing at my university recreation center. My roommate dragged me to a Step Class. Being an athlete my whole life, it definitely wasn't my thing. I was so lost! She was relentless (as us instructors can be) & told me kickboxing would be more fun & made me try again. She was right & I was hooked!! Somehow she then convinced this tomboy/athlete to become an instructor!
I went on to graduate with a degree in Education with a Concentration in Spanish and Physical Education from BGSU, but I always felt more connected to the fitness industry and longed to focus my career in health and wellness. Before joining the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation team in 2016 as the Fitness Coordinator, I was the Fitness Director for St. Andrews Parks & Playground in Charleston, SC for over 14 years.
Over the years, I've acquired over 40 certifications in a variety of formats. Since all bodies are created different, I believe there is certainly a fitness program to fit everyone whether it's a strength workout, a mind & body class or just dancing to music. You just have to find your rhythm!
After many personal injuries throughout my years as an athlete & fitness pro, I became highly trained in injury recovery and exercise modification to make sure every client reaches their maximum potential.
Very recently after 7 year illness, I ended up with a hysterectomy. I am gaining my strength again & fighting my way back to a healthy lifestyle. I am very excited to share my energy & years of experience to connect with you no matter where you live!
