Being a So Cal native and Oregon State University alum, I’m a West Coast gal all the way! I have been active my whole life with outdoor activities and team sports (volleyball and soccer), but it wasn’t until my last couple years at OSU that I discovered weight training.
Shortly after college, after falling more and more in love with fitness, I moved back to OC and gathered up the courage to make a career shift. I studied and became a certified personal trainer and began my career in the fitness industry, committed to help people achieve their fitness goals.
After going through my own health issues, working with various doctors and ‘healers’, I found my way into holistic wellness- and it changed my life. No longer was “being healthy” about eating ‘clean’ and working out to get a 6 pack. I first handedly learned there was so much more involved with wellness physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Let’s just say that opened a can of worms!
In 2017 I decided to further my education and went back to school for my Master’s in Kinesiology- concentration in Integrative Wellness. This approach reinforced my beliefs and so I continue to practice and learn more about holistic lifestyle methods.
When I am not coaching, you’ll most likely find me walking my dogs, practicing Reiki or meditation, writing up a blog post, spending time with family, exploring the outdoors with my boyfriend, or reading a good book!
