Growing up I faced trauma and heartache. Through the trauma I found solace in fitness and dance which made me who I am today.
Not long after graduating high school, I realized that my passion was to help people get and maintain the level of health and fitness that everyone deserves but so few actually attain. After obtaining education and certification as a personal trainer, I began working with individuals at a high end gym in Chicago. I was committed to becoming the best trainer possible. And while the clients that I trained were highly motivated, high net worth individuals with chronic conditions, I recognized that there was also a need to give back and mentor those who may not have been able to afford, or have access to, the services of those who I saw every day.
So it began. During the day I worked with many individuals to lose weight, regain their strength after surgery, reduce the symptoms of (or in some cases completely eliminate) high blood pressure and diabetes and optimize athletes’ sports performance. And at night I worked as a dance instructor teaching children and adolescents foundational dance movement, rhythm, choreography, and performance technique. These experiences allowed me to expand my skills as a knowledgeable, adaptable and compassionate coach.
For the past 18 years I’ve been coaching and training people to improve their athleticism, fitness and dance skills. I genuinely enjoy what I do. I practice what I preach and deliver results for clients.
