“Growing up as a dancer, I was always active growing up. After a slip and fall at work in 2010, my active lifestyle stopped and I lived in chronic pain. Years of living in other states (Kentucky and Georgia) I never made time for myself and found every excuse in the book to not maintain an active lifestyle. When I moved back home to Quincy in 2015, I slowly started back in the gym. My motivation and positive mindset to do better for myself led me on this path to be able motivate and inspire others as well in the process. I was referred to a facility and started instructing group classes in May of 2016. From there, I saw the opportunity to be able build relationships in an environment that is consistently positive.
I believe that we all hold more strength and power than we will ever know, mentally and physically. We just have to start somewhere. I’m here for that reason. I’m here to hold you accountable for hitting your goals again and again and to see just how strong you can be! I am passionate about providing classes and training for those who have a busy schedule.
