I always have loved the water, as a teenager I did a lot of competitive swimming and its set me up well throughout my life. I felt like it was time to give back some of what has been instilled in me.
Cooking, reading, gardening, and spending time with my family and friends.

I and very passionate about strength and technique and allowing clients to be exposed to progressive and regressive moves. This understanding allows range within the clientele we see and where they are on their fitness journey.
I do have a superpower. My superpower is seeing people’s potential and allowing them their time to shine!
I am a big advocate for strength training and taking time to learn technique for best execution. Furthermore, I really enjoy breaking the misconceptions of females training to be strong and not having to spend endless hours on cardio machines. This comes back to educating clients about creating a purpose for their training and allowing them to take the time to sit down and understand how and why goal setting is so important.
