My mission is and always has been to ignite the power within my clients, as a certified fitness professional, and patients, as a nurse. Over ten years ago my career in service and support began with with vulnerable, underserved people of my community fighting the disease of addiction. Every profession and career choice I've had my hand in has been about encouraging others to live their best lives. It is my purpose to show others how to live and perform at their highest level. Fitness, nutrition and personal development are the focus of my coaching groups.
Today my love for physical fitness is so much more than 'building bodies'. The passion & expertise within me is what I ultimately give to my clients which translates into them living their best life - with total confidence.
Freedom in life is confidence, and I am a believer that that confidence comes from physical and mental breakthroughs formed through a healthy, active lifestyle. As coach and mentor to my clients, I guide them through the physical & mental breakthroughs necessary inside and outside the studio as my philosophy in life is living a WHOLE life for the long term. Trust me when I say WHOLE life, as during my career as a nurse, striving to maintain health & wellness, family, friends and sanity - working this demanding profession (on shiftwork), challenged my body and mind to the max.
Juggling happiness, family and health shouldn't be a choice - and it was during my time as a nurse I really began to understand the need for proper nutrition.
During the season of long night shifts and 12 hour days, I learned really fast that shift work can destroy your brain function, hormones and metabolism. Intense cravings for sugar and starchy carbohydrates washed over me all the time from lack of sleep and my poor food choices. This wasn't working for me.
To solve what wasn't working with my health I was determined to be the exception and not let unbalanced hormones and slow metabolism take over. I continued to laser focus on my fitness and nutrition through all the brain fog and lack of sleep for multiple days during my shift work. It became my mission to figure out a way to remain “healthy” as much as possible.
Taking what I knew to be true about science as per my own observation on brain, body and life - I learned that my specific biology is unique to yours, and that a one size fits all approach is not the case (this is good news, as we are all different).
Today I am dedicated to serving others with passion, the way I have healed myself and continue to grow in total and WHOLE wellness.
