Assistant Coach

I have been married for 15 years and have 3 children. As a teenager and young adult I was always very active in sports and weight training. After getting out of school, I was in corporate America for the better half of 20 years and found the career path to be extremely stressful. During those years, I allowed myself to put my own health and wellbeing on the backburner due to the high demanding schedule and workload. Before I knew it, I had become heavier than I ever have. My body ached and I was far too young to be experiencing this sort of discomfort but due to the excess weight I was. I was uncomfortable in my own body and did not want to feel this way anymore. I decided enough was enough and I was no longer going to make excuses and I was going to do something about it. I initially started the journey on my own using what information I knew from prior years weight training as well as educating myself further. After losing 80+ lbs I decided I wanted to give competing a shot. Once I hired my coach and saw what we were able to do, my passion in helping others only grew. I decided I wanted to help others who struggle in their own bodies achieve what they often feel is unobtainable. I work with both weight loss/lifestyle clients and competitors.
