Qualifications: Certified by AFAA and NASM. Currently working on her Master's degree in Nutrition.
Personal History: Ever since childhood, I've been active in gymnastics, field hockey, ballet, and running. When I was in college, I became interested in weight training. As a result, I pursued my dream of joining the aerobics and fitness industry. I also participated in a women's soccer league for weekend recreation. I got married in 2002. At that time, I decided to leave my day job to pursue my passion for fitness full-time. I became a certified personal trainer and worked in an all women's gym in Leawood, Kansas, as a trainer and an aerobics instructor. Not only was I doing something I loved, but I was enriching people's lives and making a difference. I now live in Connecticut with my husband and two dogs.
Workout Philosophy: I'm all about change. I get bored very easily and need to keep challenging myself as well as my clients to guide them to their next level in their fitness plan. I believe that a positive attitude, healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition, and good old hard work are the most important ingredients to lead you to success.
Sucess Story: I had a client in Kansas City who came to me 25 pounds overweight. She told me to kick her 'a' and so I did. Not only did she lose the 25 pounds, but she became very self-confident and happy. She told me I made her believe in herself and she will never forget me. Being able to give somebody that kind of confidence is indescribable. It just puts a smile on my face.
