I come from an active background – basketball, football, and baseball paved the way…

Over that time I’ve worked with many populations including weight loss, strength and conditioning, competitive bodybuilding, injury prevention, wellness coaching, endurance training and metabolic conditioning. In 2001 I enjoyed the opportunity to work with the Columbus Crew as a trainer. I currently enjoy blending weightlifting, bodybuilding and Crossfit styes into my workouts.

Personal Trainer

Sports was the name of the game when I was younger. I played…
many different sports through school, continuing with football as a D1 athlete at OSU. As a youngin’, I watched the effects of polio derail my father’s ability to function. This surged my interest in the human body and the importance of improving one’s motor skills through different forms of exercise. I have committed my life to the study and service of everything having to do with the musculoskeletal systems and improving overall health, mobility, function or sport performance through exercise.

My passion for fitness began when I struggled with depression and…
weight gain personally. I was diagnosed with a thyroid condition and gained a significant amount of weight. Through my weight loss journey and new relationship with fitness and nutrition, I realized I truly enjoy helping others with their fitness goals so I became certified as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor.  I have since had 2 children and can appreciate the struggle many women have trying to find time to train with a young family.
