As a fitness coach and personal trainer, I believe in developing strength of mind and body in order to enjoy life and to be ready for whatever each day brings. As a wife and working mom, I believe in making fitness a priority, but I understand it has to work with real life.
What does being strong enough to live a life you love mean for YOU?
Maybe it’s having the energy to keep up with your kids, or the strength to carry your own groceries. Maybe it means being able to load up the kayak and spend a day on the water. Perhaps it’s completing your first 5K, or your first marathon! Whatever your goals, I’d love to help you reach them.
After years battling asthma, being picked last in P.E. class, and throwing out my back vacuuming the living room, strong was not a word I’d have used to describe myself. My Dad’s battle with the degenerative disease ALS changed the way I viewed fitness. As I began to see strength as a gift worth pursuing, I made gradual changes that led me to better health. Along the way, I was inspired to become a fitness coach so I could to help others get strong and healthy, too.

More about me:
I’m mom to five kids (plus two rescued mutts), with three kids still under our roof and two already grown and giving us grandchildren. A few years ago we moved from the Atlanta area to a smaller home in a little town on the coast of North Carolina. I’m an introvert who needs quiet time but loves people, and I have a serious addiction to good books and hot tea. Since moving to the coast, I’ve embraced our island life, learning to kayak and paddleboard, and volunteering as a nest parent in our town’s sea turtle protection program.
