I started working in fitness at a young age. I began by teaching yoga, and fell in love with the fitness industry, so I continued getting certified in class formats that I was passionate about.
Something unique about me and my business is my education backgound. I have a Mastes of Science in Medical Sociology, and have conducted and presented progressive public health research. I am constantly learning, and understand the difference between fitness trends and things that lead to real results.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Typically, the new student and I will communicate via email or phone call to see if we generally get along, and to make sure that expectations are understood on both sides. Then, we would book one session together to see how we work together. From there, I let the student decide how they feel comfortable moving forward.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Masters in (Medical) Sociology. A number of certifications in yoga, personal training, barre, Pilates, and strength training.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
No. It depends on the package, and what discipline the student is picking lessons in.
How did you get started teaching?
When I was college, I needed a job with flexible hours. Yoga and personal training gave me a lot of control of my scheduele, and did not conflict with my classes or course work.
What types of students have you worked with?
All types of students, from teenagers to senior citizens. The demographic I primarily work with and have the most known sucess with is middle-aged women who are seeking moderate to high levels of weight loss, or women who are wanting to tone up without an accompanying level of weight loss.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Recently, I have been very into muscle rolling and attending fascia and other similar workshops to learn how to reduce muscle pain safely and naturally.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Do not rush the process. There are so many trainers and teachers in this industry, you should absolutely be working with someone who you click with you and who you believe will give you the results that you want.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Students need to think realistically about their own goals. They also need to think about what type of exercise they enjoy (or at least do not hate), and come up with a plan that they will actually stick with. You want to work with someone who will work hard with you and for you.
