Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Connecticut. My family decided to make our way to Florida after a huge snowstorm 3 years ago. After we dug out of a couple of feet of snow we decided then and there to put our house on the market and make that move!

First lifting or athletic experience

My first athletic experience was in elementary school. We use to have these spring games that consisted of all different events. I found that I was very fast and competitive! LOL! I signed up for softball, volleyball and cheerleading in middle school and the rest is history.

Something Unique about you or life experience

I would have to say my biggest life experience would be the lost of both parents within 2 years of each other. CANCER SUCKS! Thankfully, I still had my step-father that has always been there for me! I took away that life is too short and tomorrow is NEVER promised. I am definitely not a glass half empty type of person. I try to stay positive and keep that smile on my face.

Biggest Lifting accomplishment

I have yet to experience any lifting accomplishments. This is an area that I’m working on and is one of my goals! I can say that I am accomplishing more than I thought I could! I’m definitely a work in progress! The fun part about this whole journey is finding out what I am capable of accomplishing!

Favorite Client Success Story

My favorite client success story is actually myself! Once I moved to Florida I gave up on working out all together. My excuses ranged from I don’t know where to go, I don’t know anyone, to it is way too hot to workout. I was actually sitting at my daughters softball game when another softball mom showed. She could hardly walk up the bleachers. She told me all about this fantastic bootcamp and I was there a week later! When I first started I was barely making it through an entire session. At the present time I do 3-4 sessions a day, when I can, and personal training. I cannot get enough of this place!!

My Favorite type of Client to work with

My favorite type of client to work with is someone that shows up and is willing to do the work. Someone that is willing to put in the work to get results! Someone motivated!
