My fitness journey started in my late 20’s when my boyfriend (and now husband), introduced me to working out and the importance of lifting weights. Fitness had never come naturally to me, but when I discovered the benefits of intelligent exercise programming and weight training, I was hooked! I also discovered the importance of a healthy diet when it came to achieving my physical goals and properly fueling my workouts. Because I found achieving my goals and the overall lifestyle change so rewarding, I decided I wanted to help other people achieve their health and fitness goals.
Since becoming a personal trainer in 2009, I have also discovered the sport of bodybuilding. I started my competition career in the Fitness division but have since switched my focus to the Figure division. I am a nationally qualified figure athlete in both the NPC and OCB as well as a Well Food Co. sponsored athlete.
I am driven and passionate about the fitness industry and about seeing my clients succeed. I enjoy working with all kinds of clients but I particularly enjoy working with those who may be a little intimidated by the gym or those new to learning how to live a sustainable healthy lifestyle. I love teaching my clients how much fun fitness & health can be.
I am originally from Alaska but I currently resides in Phoenix Arizona with my husband Andrew.
