My first introduction to the world of competitive athletics was dance at the age of 4 years-old. Soon to follow were gymnastics (my main sport!), basketball, soccer, golf, and horseback riding. Several small injuries and a final knee injury ended competitive sports. However, my love of physical activity never waned. During college, I taught aerobics and weight training classes. After much travel and some time in Corporate America I made the leap into what I am passionate about – inspiring people to get healthy. I don’t subscribe to what the media tells us health looks like, but rather what a balanced life makes an individual feel like. My belief is that our health is a confluence of the physical and mental. Both aspects are directly affected by exercise and nutrition. Currently I am thrilled and honored to be the Fitness Coordinator of The Yards Athletic Club. In addition to personal training, I also teach a variety of high intensity cardio, weight training and dance inspired classes. Other areas close to my heart include art, environmental consciousness, supporting local business and community, organic farming, holistic health, abolishing hunger in children, travel, and laughing.
