I help ambitious women free themselves of diet rules and punishment workouts so they can build habits that fuel an energized, amazing life!

My Background

I have a degree in Exercise Science, and am also a certified Exercise Physiologist, Health Coach, and Group Fitness Instructor. It’s my jam.

But… I haven’t always had it all together.

My Story

Back in college, I picked up some “not-so-healthy” habits. Even though I was playing a competitive sport and was fairly active, I picked up the dreaded “Freshman 15.”

For years I tried to diet and exercise the weight off.

I remember counting every calorie, trying to eat perfect portions, and ultimately feeling hungry and unsatisfied every day. “Should I eat this?” and “I can’t have that” were normal phrases in my vocabulary.

This restrictive mentality lead to binge eating, which lead to a sweaty gym “punishment” sesh, which then lead to more restrictive food patterns. I was using food and exercise to numb stress from work, and it was discouraging because I never felt a sense of balance.

I thought being on a diet was normal and got swept into the trends and fads that never worked. As I was pushing myself and striving for perfection (that’s my competitive nature speaking) to get back to my “high school weight” I had an epiphany.

Is this REALLY how I want to live my life?

Eventually, what helped me break the cycle was focusing on building habits and recognizing what was triggering me to emotionally eat.

I was afraid to stop counting calories, to stop working out like a maniac. But when I took the focus off of weight loss and started seeking wellness and strength, things took a turn.

Did I lose the weight eventually? Yes. And the best part is that the scale is no longer a part of my life.

I now workout smarter, not harder. I am able to feel in control around food, rather than ravenous. I make healthy choices most of the time, and other times I’m flexible.

Most importantly, I feel happy and balanced.
