My Mission

My mission is to be there, every step of the way; by actively listening, validating, and assessing all dimensions of the individuals wellbeing, not just the physical aspect. Showing sincere compassion to building strong relationships with my clients, adapting to the needs of those I am privileged to work with, and seeing the amazing results that people achieve are all reasons why I love what I do. Having a chronic disease (type-1 diabetes) has encouraged me to continue my health journey, and as such I wish to share this passion with those I am so grateful to work with.

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!"
