My Mission

I have always been an active person, spending plenty of time in the gym, but never considered myself an athlete (I really have no hand-eye coordination). After college I found my groove and really felt a difference in my body. I began doing exercises that I enjoyed instead of just what I saw others doing in the gym. My athleticism improved immensely and I began playing sports I never could before, like tennis and pickle ball. I'm no Serena Williams but I am confident enough to go to the local courts and play pick-up games with strangers! My goal is to help clients feel their best, too! If they're not happy, I'm not happy. My passion is not only improving someone's muscle tone or endurance but helping them lower their blood pressure or keep their triglycerides in check. Fitness and nutrition have the power to heal! What could a few lifestyle changes do for you?

Why Train With Me

I am positive, patient, and can adapt easily. I love feedback and am always looking to better your program. If you require modifications, we can easily work that into your routine! I can help you get the most out of your workout, regardless of how long or short you need it to be. I am a big believer that little steps make big changes. Let me help you work fitness into your life, however is best for you!

My go-to workout

For me, I like low or no-weight exercises that get my muscles burning and heart pumping.

Healthy food I love

I can never get enough fruit but at the moment I'm also loving air-fried Brussels sprouts!

Healthy food I hate

I can't eat gluten & I eat a plant-based diet but I can't stand tomatoes or canned spinach.

Favorite workout music

Almost any Spotify "workout" playlist works for me, as long as it's fast paced! AJR is my go-to.

What people are most surprised to learn about me

I'm an accomplished equestrian and won a world championship in 2015 but I am not coordinated at all!

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!"
