I began my fitness journey as a young adult. I grew up here in Hawaii, but I never availed myself of the climate and surroundings to find a path towards sustained, life-long health until my early twenties. My walk towards fitness started with huffing and puffing through my first aerobics class to my present role as personal trainer. Along the way, I had to overcome feelings of inadequacy about my body, recover from multiple stress injuries, and carry four healthy pregnancies. Each emotional and physical challenge provided me an opportunity to adopt, adapt, and overcome. These experiences taught me that it is never too late in life to start taking care of yourself and that life events should change the approach towards but not stop the pursuit of good health. I believe people have the power to change through dedication, attitude, patience, and a lot of planning. As your personal trainer, I hope to work with you to find your own enjoyable and sustainable pathway towards a healthier, fitter you!

Motivating, empowering, and encouraging people to be their best has always been a passion; helping others live life to the fullest through mind, body, and spirit. Fitness became a priority for me beginning in early adulthood. Desiring to get fit and lose 40+ pounds after having each of my four children, taught me a lot about the mind and body and what it is capable of. Through that experience and my own training, I developed a passion for helping others achieve their goals and realize their potential for change, developing healthy habits and lifestyle. In 2015 I helped start a new boxing conditioning program at the YMCA in Virginia, as well as becoming a personal trainer, and teaching group fitness, HIIT, and Pro-fit classes. My own training consists of advancing my technique and skills in kickboxing and Muay Thai, while incorporating weight training, as well as playing sports such as racquetball and softball in my free time. I am confident in my ability to help make health and fitness a lifestyle for all my clients. Through a trusting partnership you will be able to reach your goals and have fun doing it! I strive to lead and teach fitness in way that enables each individual to become self-sufficient, creating a strong foundation of self-efficacy in order to live strong and healthy for life.
