Certified Personal Trainer
“In order to utilize my compassion and love for empowering others, I obtained my Masters degree and began my career as a Social Worker in 2009. After having two children and becoming consumed by motherhood, I rediscovered the importance of self-care and refueling my soul. I have always had a passion for fitness and staying active, but I was inspired a few years ago when I discovered the powerful transformation that comes with weight training. Lifting completely shifted my mindset to celebrate what my body can do, using food as fuel, embracing opportunities for growth both physically and mentally, and finding my power. I obtained my certification and began personal training. I am passionate about helping others find their power, gain confidence, take control of their health and find joy in the process of getting stronger.”
When I’m not at CFS or working out, I am busy with my children, running my personal training business and I am a Medical Social Worker at St. Mary’s Hospital.”
