After battling an eating disorder at the age of 18, I discovered strength training and used it to empower my mind and body. My mantra, “love your body, it’s the only place you can never leave,” is the foundation of my approach to a healthy and fulfilled life.
My passion lies in promoting strength training among women while focusing on empowerment and confidence through a scientific, flexible, and sane approach to fitness and nutrition.
I believe training better prepares one for life- physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve helped hundreds of people from all sorts of diverse backgrounds achieve their fitness goals, lose fat, gain muscle, eliminate pain, improve health & movement, and become the best versions of themselves, inside out.
In an industry where quick fixes, diet scams, and magical pills are a thing of the norm, I help you distinguishing between good, evidence-based information and misinformation.
I am here to empower you, guide you, support you, and keep you accountable while building the body you want. I'm here to help you reach your health goals, and live life pain- free, and thrive!
Most importantly, I’m here to educate you.
