I began my fitness and athletic career early in life as a wrestler and football player, which always kept me in decent shape. I went on to play collegiate rugby for the University of Rhode Island while learning more about fitness and nutrition.
My journey in the fitness industry began 10 years ago after becoming a certified trainer with the National Association of Sports Medicine, and nutritionist with the National Academy of Sports Nutrition.
Originally from New York, I was a track and field athlete through middle and high school. I graduated college with a bachelor's degree in Human Ecology. After getting married in 2008, my husband and I moved out to San Diego on a whim and have been here ever since.
I was born here in San Diego but moved around a lot during my fathers US Naval career. I'm a former Marine, love music, and staying active with sports, fitness and outdoor related activities.
I am originally from Sacramento, California and I have been an athlete and competitor for as long as I can remember. As a former volleyball, soccer and basketball player, there's nothing I love more than being a part of a team and playing a sport I love.
I believe my active life style began in the womb as my mother would always joke that I was cartwheeling before I could walk. My passion for activity and movement was ever present in my childhood and has continued into my adult life.
I've been a multisport athlete my entire life. I attended college on a football scholarship and upon graduation began playing rugby. Dynamic workouts and explosive movements have been the norm since my youth.
