As I've grown older I have become an avid runner. I have ran over 20 half marathons, a marathon, and a handful of ultra marathons. Being a life long athlete grew a desire in me to push and challenge myself. I love pushing and challenging people to do things they never thought they could. Breaking thru those mental barriers is what I do best!

I have been a certified personal trainer thru ISSA for over 6 years. I am a certified level 1 Strong First Kettlebell instructor. I am also certified as a Speed and Agility instructor as well as being certified in TRX and BOSU. I was taught Kickboxing by a former professional Bellator fighter and have been teaching kickboxing for the last 4 years.

I wish I could say where I'm from, but we have moved a lot the last 20 years and hoping to Call STG home! I have always had a Love for Fitness. Being outside and moving my body makes me the Happiest. Ive been told I'm "Anything" Fitness and feel I have the passion to share my Love for it with others. I want people to Smile, Have Fun, Move that Body, Be Confident and Dance Like NoOnes Watching!!! As Ive gotten older Ive realized that Exercise means a lot more than keeping my Physical Health in check. I have to have it for my Mental Health, it makes me a better person. Being a Runner, I had expectations of what I like to feel. I discovered early that Running always make me feel Powerful, Free and Fearless. A few years ago I chose to listen to my body and stopped running on a daily basis. I missed it, my brain needed it more than anything. I found HighFitness and suddenly fell in Love. I got that "natural high" back and it was even better. Im excited to share this with you all and hope you can feel what I feel!
