Qualifications: Certified by AFAA. Also, a 'Firm Certified' Master Instructor.
Personal History: I became interested in fitness after doing videos at home and seeing the changes that took place in my own body, especially the changes that took place when I added weight training. In addition to being married and starting my family, I am a full-time pharmaceutical sales representative.
Workout Philosophy: I believe that our bodies are designed for movement. If we ignore this important part of ourselves, other areas of our lives will suffer. I am passionate about motivating women to embrace their physical power, which in turn strengthens the mental and spiritual aspects of our lives as well.
Success Story: One of my favorite success stories is that of Kim from Saluda, South Carolina. Kim is a wife and very busy mother of two children. She did what many women tend to do when they focus on taking care of their families - she stopped taking care of herself and her weight went out of control. She eventually realized that she needed to make some changes and she began doing Firm videos at home. I'll never forget when she came to the studio and showed me her 'before' pictures as they didn't look anything like the energetic and fit Kim who was standing in front of me. I was able to work with her one-on-one in our studio after her husband gave her a session with me for her birthday and I was so inspired and motivated by her desire to push herself to the next level in fitness. Kim is proof that even the busiest mother can make a small investment in her health that will vastly improve other areas of her life. She has also accomplished what I believe is key to our nation's health in the future by using her role as a mother and role model to instill the importance of health and fitness in her entire family.
