My fitness journey started 8 years ago with running. I have completed many half marathons, three full marathons (with qualifying for Boston in 2017), several trail runs and a mini triathlon. Wellness is my passion and I became a certified personal trainer in 2014. I am also a fitness nutrition specialist and a weight-loss specialist. I’ve worked with all ages and abilities, from teenagers sports performance enhancement to elderly with disabilities.

My ultimate goal, always, is to help you help yourself by passing along knowledge, positive energy and type of motivation you need to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. I possess the foundation of skills necessary to teach safe and effective fitness and nutrition, regardless of what level you are at.
Determination and commitment is the key to success.

As a former competitive athlete growing up who spent a large amount of time competing and training, I knew I had to continue in some sort of physical activity to keep my competitive drive going when I finished competing in sports. As I completed my sports career I started bodybuilding to stay in shape and to push myself physically and mentally.  I have developed a passion for working out and have been consistently training for the last twenty-two years.

After working in law enforcement for the last twelve years in California and training other deputies I worked with, I decided when we made the move to South Carolina, I was going to go a different route in employment and start training clients full time. I currently work with clients of all different back grounds from special population, amputees, elderly, competitive athletes, youth sports, and everything in between.
