WHAT GOT YOU INTERESTED IN FITNESS?
I have always enjoyed moving, I don’t like sitting or staying still for too long. After my second child, I realized the weight of pregnancy, work, stress, parenting and LIFE had gotten to me and I needed to lose a TON of weight. With proper nutrition and being diligent in my workouts I lost over 60 lbs and have managed to keep it off for years.


PROFESSIONAL AND ACADEMIC BACKGROUND:
I have a Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and worked as a Quality and Systems engineer for almost ten years. My Master’s Thesis was on Biomechanics which introduced me to the field of kinesiology and sports medicine. I’m always reading and on forums to learn about how the body at work works best and how to prevent or revert injury.

 

FAVORITE FITNESS ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE OF THE GYM:
My personal training time outside of class is doing HIIT training, lifting, doing some BodyFlow and BodyCombat at home. In the fall I’m starting a hybrid-gymnastics program to get me stronger and leaner (sort of like American Ninja Warrior 🙂 )


When I’m not teaching class, you’ll probably find me: I have two kids, most of my time is spent teaching them or helping them with school and we enjoy working out together as a family. Homeschooling my kids and/or doing something related to their schooling, working my Essential Oils business, volunteering at church or spending time with my family and friends. Cooking….I spend a LOT of time cooking!


FUN FACT:
I love life and love people BUT I’m really not an extrovert. Most people think I am, but I enjoy solitude and quiet and treasure those rare moments of silence with just God and me more than anything else.
