As a mama, I have a passion for helping other mama's feel strong, empowered and confident in their own skin. After giving birth to my boys I remember the feeling of disconnection within my own body, the emotional and mental strain of the extra weight I was carrying. I craved guidance and support as I learned to move and appreciate my 'new body'. Through my own overwhelm I found myself in a dangerous cycle of disordered eating, and exercise addiction.
My personal struggles, and the support of my husband, led me to begin a career path in personal training and health coaching. After years of working in veterinary medicine, I began immersing myself in educating myself to not only heal and learn self-acceptance, but to be the best guide and support system I possibly can for other women.
As your guide, I hold a personal training certification, multiple yoga certifications, sports nutrition, women's strength training, pre & post-natal coaching certification, as well as general nutrition coaching.
When I am not coaching women, you can find me on adventures with my two boys, snuggling with our 6 dogs, riding my horse Calypso, or paddle boarding on the French Broad River with my husband Jose.
I also enjoy staying active in the ‘mountain life’ through hiking and mountain biking.
Really, if it’s active and outside, there’s not much I won’t try!
I always strive to meet my clients exactly where they are, but I also want to inspire you to learn into what is possible! Change can be hard, but I can promise you I will be there to cheer you on every step of the way.
Let’s get to know each other, dream a little bit and uncover a life that serves your wildest dream.
