I remember when I couldn't run a mile. Here I am a few years later having competed in 5 marathons, 7 half-marathons and a few other fun runs. I do it because I said I couldn't. I do it because I have a competitive spirit. I do it for a million reasons, but at the end of the day the most important thing is I DO IT. Whatever your "it" is, I want to be part of it. If you are a runner, or a non-runner with the spirit of an athlete, let me help you get your body running fit.  

I’m certified by the National Council on Strength and Fitness as a Certified Personal Trainer, and by Precision Nutrition as a Certified Nutrition Coach. A 2000 graduate of UW-Whitewater with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, I built a 12-year career in financial services before embarking on my dream to promote the health and well-being of others. My approach to personal training is simple and it’s the same way I approach every aspect of my life- I practice what I preach, and recognize that without health, life cannot be fully lived. Whether my clients are returning from joint surgeries or training for their next race, I absolutely love the process of uncovering each person’s unique goals and tailoring a program to reach them.
