Bio:

"I started this journey to get myself fit. In the process I realized that I enjoyed sharing what I had learned to help others reach their goals. It started with Crossfit and personal training and now I am always adding to my skill set. Two years ago I found Barre fitness and was hooked. Barre built on the dance classes I had enjoyed as a teenager, and gave me a way to share the toning exercises with my clients. I also love running and enjoy sharing my passion with other runners. I have worked with new runners to seasoned runners who are working on completing 5ks,10ks and half marathons."
