Owner/Certified Personal Trainer
I have been involved in fitness and sports since I took my first steps and, as a personal trainer I have the opportunity to share my love for fitness. I try to help my clients find what works best for their body, personality and goals. In addition, I feel it is important to keep the workouts interesting and dynamic so my clients are always challenged. As an athletic trainer, I have had extensive experience rehabilitating injured athletes and training them to peak performance. As a member of the 2009 US Women’s Street Hockey team, I also served as the head Strength and Conditioning Coach. I have worked with expectant mothers and new mothers to help them reach optimum health. At any level, my most successful clients have made a commitment to reach their goals and have recognized the importance of personal training in their plan.

I first became interested in fitness when I started running to lose weight back in high school. Weightlifting, and exercise in general, helped me build my confidence as well as provide a framework for making responsible, healthy decisions outside of the weight room. Because of this I chose to transition my career from office work to personal training. Personal training allows me to share my love of fitness with others - I really enjoy watching people progress while reaching and surpassing their goals. I specialize in weight management, muscle development, and strength training.

As a former competitive and professional athlete and coach, diet and exercise was an integral part of my training. Upon retiring, my body was compromised by poor nutrition and long term injuries. Feeling physically and mentally depleted, I stopped working out. After a year I realized that not moving made me feel worse, not better. Determined to feel good and strong again, I hired a qualified personal trainer. Within months I felt and moved better than I had in years! This was my motivation to become a certified trainer, so I could help others feel good and move well, especially those with chronic injuries and pain. Nothing makes me happier than a client achieving a goal, whether it is doing their first push up or going up the stairs without pain or shortness of breath!
