It all began with my sweet grandmother, who raised her family with healthy habits like juicing, natural health remedies, meditation and daily physical fitness decades before it was common in society. As a child, I was a gymnast and my passion for health and fitness never ceased. In college, I taught group exercise. Post college, I competed in Fitness America pageants. Since then, I earned many fitness certifications in aerobics, water aerobics, Mad Dog Spinning, AAFA, ACSM, ASEP Exercise Physiologist, STOTT Pilates, CoreBarre, and my signature certification A+ Method. With strong interest in a fit body, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Exercise & Wellness Management and a Master's degree in Physician Assistant Studies. With past experiences working as a physical therapy assistant, an exercise physiologist, and a cardiology physician assistant, my style of post rehabilitation training assures my clients safety across different aspects of health and fitness. Let's get moving!
