My Mission

My goal is to help my clients achieve the goals that they have set for themselves and to live their best lives physically every day. I believe that your health is your most important gift! As a cancer survivor, I know firsthand how leading a healthy lifestyle can help with your recovery and your ability to continue to do the things in life that are important to you. I also believe that fitness can be an outlet for stress as well as a way to build confidence in yourself. As a wife and mom, I understand how easy it is to put the needs of your family ahead of your own. We often forget that taking care of ourselves is important!

Why Train With Me

I believe that there is no one size fits all program. Everyone’s goals are different, their bodies are different, and mindset is different. My goal is to tailor programs for my clients that fit their lifestyles and goals. I have over 14 years of experience working with clients of all skill and fitness levels with different goals.

My go-to workout

As a mom of 2 young girls I love workouts that give me the most bang for my buck!

Healthy food I love

I love protein and veggies but I have a sweet tooth. My go to is fat free yogurt and strawberries!

Healthy food I hate

I’m not a fan of chia seeds! I’ve tried hiding them in everything and I just don’t like the texture.

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!"
