About me

I’ve worked primarily in wellness, clinical and athletic settings since 2014. I’ve worked as a personal trainer and chiropractic assistant as well as gym and spa manager. I’ve always placed an importance on my health and becoming a personal trainer allowed me to share the experience and knowledge I have gained over the years to help others live happy and healthy lives.

I love my job because I love the community! Every day I step foot in the studio, I look forward to coaching my clients. They always come in with a great attitude. Also, being able to motivate people who are willing to go the extra mile is so satisfying. My ideal client is anyone who is willing to give it their all, even on days when they don’t want to show up but do so anyway. When I’m working with someone, not only do I help them achieve their fitness and wellness goals, but I also make sure to connect with them on a more personable level. I love to invest my time learning about my clients’ lives so they trust me to help them get to where they want to be. This usually leads to long-lasting friendships!

Specialties

My specialties include endurance and strength training, injury prevention, rehabilitation, weight loss, muscle gain, boot camps, sports-specific training and confidence building.

Philosophy

I try to inspire and help people to lead healthier lives! I give my clients 100% every time they work with me. One of my goals is to always make a difference in an person’s life.

Personal training has its challenges. It’s not always easy. As fitness professionals, we need to be on our “A game.” Our energy and attitude must be able to lift up clients. Plus, we need to figure out what type of programming to implement depending on a client’s medical conditions, previous history, etc. Personal training is not one size fits all. Every client is going to require something different.

Outside the gym

I currently live in Hillsboro, Ore. My hobbies include snowboarding, surfing, reading, making terrariums, spikeball, watching movies and eating food (haha).
