I have been in the fitness industry for 8 years. I have worked nearly every position from Front Desk to General Manager. I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. GO BUCKEYES! I’m a huge OSU and Bengals fan. I love all sports. I played collegiate basketball so sports have always been a vital role in my life. I moved to Maryland 3 years ago because my husband transferred his career to this area. I have been a leader for my entire life, so I feel leading Gold’s Gym Bowie is a natural fit. I take extreme ownership for not just everyone that sits in front of me from joining the gym, to a problem with the gym, or their account; but I also take ownership of the facility and how it is ran. I am very proud to be the General Manager for Gold’s Gym in Bowie.

What led you to a career in the fitness industry? My best friend was an area manager for some clubs in Ohio and she was opening up a new club and needed front desk help. I did not even want to in the beginning but once I started I knew this was my calling. I have a serious passion for management and creating an environment people love coming to. I love to watch people transform and see their goals being achieved. I love my Gold’s Gym family!
How do you spend your time outside of the gym? I am a mother of 3, so I’m very busy outside of the gym. Constantly running from sporting event to sporting event. I also have a love hate relationship with cleaning and I feel like I’m always cooking!
Some advice for our members: No one is judging you! One huge misconception is everyone’s going to be looking at you at the gym. Everyone has insecurities and everyone is scared about the same things. Just focus on yourself and that is the only person that matters!
