Just like most of you I struggle with the balance of work, family, hubby and me time; not to mention all the busy tasks of everyday life. I have made scheduling, eating healthy and exercise a priority in my life and the lives of my family. My goal is to help you and others live healthy lives and make healthy choices because it really is true you have nothing without your health. Most people can make the changes but need direction and support. I chose this career because I have always loved the atmosphere and energy that surrounds it. I love and stay dedicated to this career because I see how it changes lives and bodies. My passion runs deep. When I was one month shy of my sixteenth birthday my mother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of inflammatory breast cancer. My mom fought back with everything she had and got to see her youngest daughter graduate high school and celebrated her twenty-fifth wedding anniversary with my dad, her high school sweetheart. But the cancer was too strong and after a six year battle my mother went home to be with God. At this time in my life I was already knee deep in the fitness world. I was twenty-two and very interested in keeping my bikini body in tip top shape, but after losing my mother I turned more to the health element. I wanted answers! Why my mom? The more I researched, the more I was intrigued, not just about cancer but all there is to be aware about with our health. I realized we can-not predict the future or always beat cancer but we can do our best to prevent it and or be in the best health to fight back. I wish I knew then what I know today. Maybe I could have helped my mom, but I was young and it has taken years to gain the knowledge and experience I have acquired. My personal tragedy is what fuels me. I can not bring my mother back, but I can use the most terrible thing that happened to me and make it something good. So yes, I will try to help you get that body you’ve always wanted because that will bring you happiness and a sense of accomplishment, but even more if I can get my clients to take charge of their health and live a little more healthier, the body will come with many other benefits.
