I have always been a relatively active person- was on 3 cheer squads through high school. In college (due to a mix of family problems and struggling with mental health) I started to struggle with my health and weight. After a brief medical scare, I turned to fitness. I tried every kind of gym, diet, had personal trainers, I did it all and learned SO much! About 5 years ago I decided to really embrace my love of fitness and nutrition and share it with others. Along the way I also found a special place in my heart for running, strength training, and nutrition. I am here to help you set and achieve your goals, but MY main goal is to make sure you FEEL better. I also truly believes fitness should be fun, so dancing is highly encouraged.
I struggled for many years with depression, it ran in my family. In college, my mom had a health scare and I decided to drop everything I was doing to be with her. Of course, this did not help my mental health. I turned to food, and made a lot of bad decisions... I became significantly overweight. Flash forward a few years, I had my own health scare with the ultimatum to lose weight or my sight. That lit the spark I needed, and from there health and fitness became my passion. I'm happy, I'm healthy, my mental health is under control, and I love what I do!
I have had a lot of ups and down in my life, but in this stage of my life... my daughter is my driving force. Everything I do is for her, I want her to be proud of her mama. Not to mention... I want to show her women can be strong AF!
