About this pro

I strongly believe that things happen for a reason. People or opportunities are strategically placed in your life to help you get from where you are to where you want to be. Perhaps you have been struggling with your weight and don't know where to begin. Maybe you have been working out for a while but have reached a plateau and feel like you need a challenge. Whatever your reason or motivation, I am glad you found me and I am ready to guide you down your health and fitness journey. This journey won't be easy. You will have to get comfortable being uncomfortable and find that inner strength to avoid certain temptations and the discipline to workout even when you don't feel like it. I will push you and challenge you to go beyond your threshold because I know you can do more. It's easy to make excuses to yourself but I will hold you accountable and not let you buy in to what your inner critic has to say. Your body is capable of amazing things and often it's that inner voice that tends to sabotage your potential. Together, we will work towards achieving your health and fitness goals and create lifestyle changes that will get you lasting results. Are you ready to build something together?

I love empowering my clients to see that they have the power to choose how they show up in all aspects of their lives. If a behavior, habit, mindset no longer serves you, you get choose how you want to be. Once my clients fully understand and grasp this concept, the domino effect begins to occur and they start improving and flourishing in all areas of life from relationships to career, self-image to spirituality! It’s amazing to see and be a small part of that transformation!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I typically begin with a phone consultation where we get to learn a little more about each other. I ask questions about your goals, values, background and history and create space to have you ask me questions as well. This is just as much an interview for me as it is for you so it’s only fair to allow you to ask some questions to see if we are the right fit. 

We then discuss, prices, availability, and book out the first session if you are ready to go. I will follow up with an email and a couple of forms to have you fill out prior to our initial session. 

Our first session is typically different as we are doing a variety of exercises to determine your fitness level and style. From there, I design a program that will support your goals while staying within your current fitness level. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Learning as an essential part of being a fitness professional. I am constantly taking trainings and workshops as well as reading professional articles to further my education. Along with that I am certified in the following, always picking up a new certification or two every year.

How did you get started teaching?

It's a funny story, because had someone told me that I would be in the fitness industry and a personal trainer and lifestyle coach 10 years ago, I wouldn't have believed them. 

I was a fulltime college student and had been working in a CPA firm for the last 5 years. I wanted my taste of working in the corporate world and wearing business clothes. It was a great experience and I learned a lot about myself but it wasn't for me. I was looking for a place to workout where I could meet people and have an escape from stress and everyday life. Enter Diva Den Studio! They had a week free pass and I thought, why the heck not. The studio was small and only offered a few classes but I was hooked. I started attending regularly and when the now owner of Diva Den Studio became sick and asked me if I wanted to teach the class for her, I was neverous and thought she was crazy. That was my first taste of teaching. Soon after, I was encouraged to get my license to teach Zumba. After some convincing, I did! Then things just started snowballing. I realized that when I was teaching, I would experience a level of joy like nothing else. The best part was that it felt effortless and people would approach me saying that I had really inspired them. I took a huge leap of faith when I quit my job where I was making good and steady money to work in an industry that wasn't always so stable. Truth is, even though it can be extremely stressfuln and unpredicatable at times, there's no where else i'd rather be. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with so many different people, varying in age, ability and motivation. I have learned something from every person I have come in contact with and continue to grow as a trainer and coach. 

I have come to realize that there is someone for everyone and that I was doing a disservice to my clients by just taking anyone. I have gotten more picky about who I take as a client over the last couple of years because I am not just in it to make money, but to really make a difference and leave a lasting change in the people I serve. 

Now, I work with women who are tired of dieting, tired of the quick fix and are tired of making the same goals over and over again and never seeing the results. I support my clients in defining their values, uncovering the whys, discovering the blocks that keep them from taking action and not just dreaming about the lifestyle they desire, but actually living it. 

If you are someone who is dedicated, committed and really seeking to change the quality of your life, I am ready to work with you!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have been working with a client for over a year now and her success story always brings a smile to my face. When she first came to me, she was going through a hard time having just lost her father. She is a mom of three with a busy job and she seemed lost, like she didn't even know who she was at the moment or what she was capable of. She had a real negative view of herself which she reflected out to the world. She was so focused on all of the things that went wrong that she never took the time to enjoy or appreciate the things that were going right. We worked on mindset and positive affirmations and looking at things from a different perspective as well as getting her in shape physically. A year later, she was down more that 10% body fat and several sizes in clothes. Although those were great things to celebrate, was just a bonus to the real transformation which was her confidence, her view of herself and the way she views life. The small shifts in her mindset, created a domino effect in all areas of her life and it's so exciting to see and work with her today!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advise to anyone looking for a personal trainer or coach is to do your research. You are not only investing your money but your time. You can always make more money, but you can’t get back time. It’s important to find the right person to support you in your journey. 

Write down what you are looking for in a trainer or coach and then look for the person who aligns with your values. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Before talking to a potential trainer or coach, imagine yourself 3 months from now, 6 months from now, maybe even a year from now. What in your life has changed because of your decision to work with a coach or trainer? What was your experience like working with that person and what role have they played in supporting you with your goals. 

Once you have an idea of what you want to acheive and in what time frame, come up with the questions that will show you if this potential coach or trainer aligns with your end goal.
