With hard work and commitment to what’s in front of us, she strives to give her clients the tools, knowledge, and encouragement they need to accomplish their goals – one day at a time.

Outside the gym, she enjoys the outdoors, time with my husband and family, ultimate frisbee, hiking, running, playing the guitar, and enjoying time with friends.
