Qualifications: AFAA Group Fitness. AFAA Personal Trainer Certification. FIRM instructor since 2002.

Personal History: I am 25 years old and from Winnsboro, SC. I now live in Charlotte, NC, where I work as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I'm engaged to be married December 2007. I have a Jack Russell Terrier named Jax. I began dancing when I was 5 years old. When I was 19, I realized I wanted to pursue college and a career in Speech Pathology. I had always been interested in group fitness as I grew up taking classes in my hometown with my mom. I began running in college and made the cross-country team. I missed the group fitness experience and lacked muscle definition and proportion in my body. I began taking classes at The FIRM with my good friend and fellow FIRM Instructor, Annie Lee. We were hooked after our first class!

Workout Philosophy: Working out should never feel like a job. If so, you should take a look at the type of workout you're doing and make sure it's the right challenge for YOUR personality. A workout should make you feel better about the person you are each time you do it. Feel that 'good tired' and be proud of what you just accomplished!

Success Story: Samantha, a client in Columbia, SC, had only been to one week of FIRM classes. The second week, she was wearing a sleeveless tank top. The third week, she was wearing fitted capri pants (much different than the previous baggy sweats she wore her first week). After FIRMing for about a month, Samantha was wearing shorts and tanks to my classes. Today, 1 year later, she looks as if she's been working out all of her life. She is a testament to everyone that you CAN change your body. More than anything, she stands a little taller and is a more confident woman than she was that first week.
