I’ve been in the industry since 2014 when I decided to combine my love for working with people and passion for health and fitness. I’ve experienced the ups and downs of trying to build a sustainable lifestyle, often learning the hard way. I truly believe that, if you want to make long-lasting change, it’s important to bring attention to every aspect of your life including fitness, nutrition, relationships, and personal well-being. My goal is to assist my clients in attaining a lifestyle that allows them to stay active, feel good, have fun, and enjoy life to the fullest.
I love connecting with people and helping them take control of their health. It is so rewarding for me to be a part of a person’s journey as they gain more confidence in the gym and implement healthy nutrition behaviors then watching that have a profound effect on the rest of their life.
My ideal client is someone who is in it for the long game and willing to put in consistent effort. They are focused on quality of movement and balanced nutrition and, despite their fears and insecurities, have managed to step into the gym and make their health a priority.
I help my clients by getting to know who they are outside the gym, what motivates them and what they struggle with—in other words, the whole picture. Understanding my clients as individuals allows me to better assist them in reaching their goals and keeping them accountable. I strive to create a positive and welcoming atmosphere in the gym, which can be an intimidating place for many people.
• Strength training – I focus on building a strong foundation with proper movement patterns and core work with each client. A main focus of mine is training with kettlebells because their versatility applies to building strength and lean muscle, losing unwanted body fat and improving functional movements.
• Nutrition Coaching – I assist my clients in making healthy food choices to support their lifestyle, goals, and long-term results. This can include meal assessments, personalized nutrition plans, and macronutrient guidance (advanced).
• Habit and Behavior Assessment and Guidance – Taking a look at the full picture, I help my clients on creating sustainable daily habits to support their goals and lead to lasting change.
Practice consistency and live with purpose. Becoming the best version of ourselves extends beyond our physical abilities or appearance. By focusing on strength training and quality nutrition, I’ve witnessed how training can have profound effects on our mental and emotional well-being as well. When you can find empowerment through training, you become a more resilient person in every aspect of your life.
Outside the gym
I’m from Portland, Oregon but spent most of my childhood in Sedona, Arizona, before moving back to Portland before high school.
I love exploring Portland’s endless coffee shops, getting out in nature, and traveling to new places for my boyfriend’s triathlons. I enjoy learning more about fitness, nutrition and health, and I spend a lot of my free time immersed in the health industry and on personal growth.
I have a twin sister who is my best friend and a boyfriend who is a constant source of motivation and support (we all live together!).
