My Mission
During my high school years, I suffered several major knee injuries that required surgery and rehabilitation. It was then that I was introduced to the benefits of physical exercise inside of a gym environment. Following a fitness regime not only changed me physically but also emotionally and mentally. I decided to become a personal trainer so that I can show others the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle both inside and outside of the gym. I accomplish this by providing them with the tools they need to live this active lifestyle and successfully reach their fitness goals. Teaching others the proper form and function of exercises, developing different fitness programs to help them reach their different fitness goals, and offering nutritional advice are my primary focus. It is a tremendously rewarding experience for me to witness someone transform and make those changes they've been working so hard to achieve.

Why Train With Me

I have a deep level of compassion and empathy for my clients. I am able to relate to them on a personal level but am also a very good motivator. If someone is training with me, they'll always get great workouts, motivation and best of all, the results they want.

My go-to workout

I enjoy it all! But I especially do love a good strength day where I get to move some heavy weights.

Healthy food I love

Chicken is my absolute favorite food on the planet. And peanut butter... on anything and everything!

Healthy food I hate

I know they are considered a healthy source of fat, but I am not the world's biggest avocado fan!

Favorite workout music

ROCK and heavy metal! Especially when lifting heavy. Rap is okay... in small amounts.

Client stories

"Before finding Kickoff, I wasted so much time sitting in my car at the gym trying to google the "best" workout for the day. Now I never fret over workouts - they're sent to me with clear instruction in the Kickoff app. Working with my trainer via text has been such a benefit. Having that accountability was key - I beat my goal by 10 lbs, losing 40 lbs before my wedding day!"

"I have loved every single week of Kickoff. As a busy, working mom, I don't like leaving my home & family to go to the gym.
