About Me

Hi! I'm so excited you're here.  It means that you have taken the first step in reaching your fitness goals.  First and foremost I am a wife to an amazing husband and mother of three very little ones.  I understand what it means to be busy!  I have worked full time with 2 under 2 and I am now stay and work at home mom, so I understand the struggle and the reward on both sides of the spectrum. 

I am a certified personal trainer and run coach with over 15 years of experience in the Fitness Industry. I previously served as the Regional Fitness Director and Master Educator at Orangetheory Fitness.  I have experience coaching Spin, Core/Balance, Bootcamp, Contact/Cardio Kickboxing, Zumba, Orangetheory Fitness, and Strength Training.  I have also privately trained and taught group fitness at several corporate gyms including the Abercrombie Corporate Gym and American Signature/DSW Corporate Gym.   

 

My specialty is strength for runners. I love heping runners (and all athletes) with functional strength that will help them excell in their respective sport. 

I am a Charlotte Marathon Ambassador where I get to connect with the Charlotte Running Community and promote one of the best races in the US!  I am also a Nuun Ambassador and an On Running Ambassador as part of the On Run Crew. 

 

I am grateful to be able to incorporate my love for nonprofits with my passion for running.   I previously served as the run coach for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation-Team Challenge Columbus, the head marathon coach for Team in Training Miami, a mentor for Team in Training Columbus and an athlete ambassador for the Eleonore Rocks Foundation.

 

I was a lead run & hike presenter at Wanderlust Yoga Festival in California where I lead groups on challenging yet scenic trail runs and hikes. 

I love to coach people to reach their running goals.  Whether they are running their first 5k or marathon, I want to be there every step of the way.
