I lost 65 pounds back in 1999 and in spite of obtaining a degree in Journalism and Communication, my passion has always been fitness. I decided to make a career switch in 2014 to become a certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach. Prior to this, I dabbled in National fitness modeling for 2 years and have become a 2 time Crossfit Granite Games athlete. In addition, I'm striving to qualify to become a U.S. Olympic Weightlifting Masters National athlete.
My heart and soul lies in the nutritional field, specifically weight loss and the bodybuilding ring. Designing customized programs for all ages, shapes and sizes. From Olympic Weightlifting Athletes to males and females in their 50's looking lose 50 pounds: I've coached hundreds of client's to obtain goals from qualifying for a Nationals weightlifting meet, to fitting in a wedding dress to training for The Boston Marathon. Through education, passion and customized programming, I strive to improve overall wellness in a variety of avenues. I strive to empower my clients to change their lifestyle and behaviors in a timely and healthy manner.
