My desire to become a Personal Trainer came after my life took some unexpected turns and I found myself facing my own weight challenges. Having been relatively active most of my life it was not easy to realize that my nutrition and fitness once was. Being able to not only achieve my fitness goals but surpass them gave me a great sense of accomplishment and pride and I wanted to help others achieve that same goal. That desire set me on a path to become certified as a Personal Trainer. My goal as a Personal Trainer is to support people through all phases of their wellness process - physical, nutritional and emotional - so that my clients can reach their own personal goals.
I am an avid runner and have competed in sprint duathalon and triathlon events as well. Mother to two children, I have seen how I can be an example to my kids through my own healthy choices and inspire them to go after their goals as well. Originally from Spokane, Washington, I love Portland and all of the opportunities there are here for people to try activities of all kinds.
