About Me

My Backstory

I was a volleyball player from the age of twelve, playing competitively year-round until I graduated high school. Performing my best was always my number-one priority. Growing up a competitive athlete, food was my source of fuel. What I ate before practice, after practice and on game day significantly impacted how I played and felt, so monitoring my nutrition has always been a part of my life.

Getting into high school, I started becoming body conscious, comparing myself to others and restricting my calories- the whole 9 yards. My goal quickly became being as skinny as possible, and I took up long-distance running to further my fat loss progress. This quickly became a very unhealthy, unsustainable routine where I was running to “burn off” what I ate, eating extremely low-calorie all day, and overeating at night many times per week. I fell into a dark place mentally in this same time frame and all these factors perpetuated the vicious cycle.

Finding flexible dieting, macro tracking and lifting weights toward the end of high school was what brought me out of this cycle. My mindset changed, and I wanted to be strong, muscular and toned rather than skinny.

Immediately after graduating high school, I studied for my NSCA Certified Personal Trainer certification, passed with flying colors, and began working as a trainer in my local gym full-time that fall, while taking time off from school for one semester. I began taking bodybuilding and eating right very seriously in college, focusing on tracking macronutrients and following specific training protocol to build a competitive physique for the bodybuilding stage.

Fast-forward to the Spring of 2016, I began my online coaching business, started taking on less clients in-person (I finished in-person training in October that year) and grew my social media reach to support my career goals. I competed twice in the Summer of 2016, and twice in the summer of 2018 in pursuit of my IFBB pro card. I placed 13th of 29 women at the NPC North Americans National show.

Currently I am taking a few years away from the stage to build the muscle mass I need to win a Pro status in the sport of Women’s Bikini Bodybuilding, coaching clients, building my business and enjoying life to the fullest along the way.

My Mission

Healthy Lifestyle

Above all else, I will help you learn and solidify healthy habits that will carry you throughout the rest of your life.

Strength Training

I will teach you the ins and outs of lifting weights and how empowering it is to feel stronger than you ever have.

Achieving Your Goals

We’ll get you to where you want to be regardless of whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, or improve athletic performance.

Sustainability

The results you achieve will be sustainable and enjoyable for the long-term, not a quick-fix or fad diet.

What I Do

I am an online fitness coach for both lifestyle and contest prep clients and have been doing this since the Spring of 2016. This was when I began my online coaching business and grew my social media reach to support my career goals.

I compete naturally in the NPC Bikini division, I’ve competed twice in the Summer of 2016, and twice in the summer of 2018 in pursuit of my IFBB pro card. I placed 13th of 29 women at the NPC North Americans, my first National show.

I am also a volleyball athlete; I compete in both indoor and sand tournaments depending on the season. This has become a part of my life since my last show in August of 2018 and I have enjoyed being a now hybrid athlete since picking my first sport back up.

I’ve been training clients since the summer of 2015 and am certain that this is my destined path in life. Helping others change their bodies, become their fittest selves and gain confidence they never knew they could have while reaching their goals is my passion.

I have helped men and women of all ages, sizes and experience levels, and I strongly believe that you are capable of anything, no matter how old, young, experienced or novice you may be. I preach developing not only a healthy body, but a strong mind to all my clients and to my audience on social media. Success truly comes from the mind- what you believe you are capable of in the here and now.
