She is a certified Personal Trainer, Spin Instructor, Group Fitness Instructor, and Nutrition and Wellness Specialist. Her passion for fitness stems from wanting her clients to have a lifelong journey with wellness. This passion comes from changing peoples views on what fit looks like. Her motto is: “I’m not training to be skinny, I’m training for longevity.”
