My fitness journey began early on when I discovered how much I loved moving my body, whether it was in musical theatre productions or organized sports. From learning production choreography and executing team plays to training my voice as part of my B.S. in Music, I have always felt a passion for movement training and how the human body works.
After graduating from Bradley University in Illinois, I parlayed those movement skills into a career teaching group fitness, and became a certified Personal Trainer through N.P.T.I., with an emphasis in biomechanics, anatomy, and the physiology of corrective postural alignment. In 2009, I started my personal training business in Chicago, incorporating Pilates mat exercise as well as functional and traditional resistance training. Long a practitioner and lover of yoga, in 2014 I completed the Yogaview 200-hour teacher training in Chicago and began teaching group and private yoga classes as well.
For my personal training clients, I have developed a one-of-a-kind personalized program called Fusion Fitness. This comprehensive training methodology incorporates the core work, flexibility and therapeutics of Pilates and yoga with the muscle development and fat burning of traditional resistance and HIIT training. Fusion Fitness is fully customizable and perfect for individuals or small training groups as well as larger corporate wellness programs. This way of training can be tooled to emphasize specific goals such as fat loss, endurance gain, stress relief, mindfulness, flexibility, or all of the above.
I'm now based in LA, but my personal training business has never been more accessible! I train many clients virtually, making a face-to-face training experience possible even if we're thousands of miles apart. There is a happier, more
fulfilling life of abundance and comfort available to everyone, no matter where you're starting from! Helping clients navigate toward their personal fitness, health, and overall wellness goals is my true passion. Through personalized exercise design, nutritional analysis and guidance, and developing practices such as meditation and corrective postural alignment, we can achieve those goals together. But enough about me; let's get started on your path to all-encompassing health!
