☼ Introduction

I grew up in Colorado my whole life. I love the mountains and my form of entertainment growing up was playing outside and playing sports! This was my family’s way of having fun together. I learned to love health and being active at a very young age and I am so thankful for that. I love my amazing boyfriend and family more than anything in the world. They inspire me to be the best version of ME.

☼ Inspirational quotes?

“The secret of health for both mind and body, is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

"If you do not love yourself, well, you cannot do anything well, that's my philosophy." Nawal El Saadawi

☼ Fitness journey?

As I mentioned above, I grew up playing sports and being an athlete through high school. However, I specifically got into the gym industry when my mom started teaching classes at a small gym back home. I started going to her classes at 14. Then by age 16, my first job was at Gold’s Gym (it was brand new in Grand Junction at the time).

At 17, I started teaching classes like BodyCombat, BodyPump, Spin etc. I knew I had found what I loved to do, which is to spread my love of fitness to others and help them reach their goals. This passion has never failed me.

☼ Your diet?

I love fresh fruit and veggies (I would grow a salad in my fridge if I could). I also love fish and lean meats, however I don’t need to have those daily.

I love my oatmeal and other grains like brown rice and quinoa!

To me, eating clean is a lifestyle; not to say I don’t splurge on the occasional frozen yogurt, but consistency and living from REAL food is essential for our bodies.

☼ Favorite Bible verse?

Yes. Several! I truly believe we live out our Lord’s love by showing love to others and being the best human we can be. Therefore, I love Mark 12:31:

"Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than this.”

I think if we all lived out our lives in this way, we would make our Lord happy.

☼ Fitness advice?

Consistency! Allow yourself a day where you splurge on a meal or two, but try to be 95% good the rest of the week. In order to make gains in your fitness, your nutrition has to be on point.

You have to eat well in order to see your hard work that you put in on the treadmill or lifting those weights.

☼ Long-term plans?

We will see what plans are really in store for me! I love the business side of fitness, as I have been in the operations and fitness management side of the boutique studio in Brentwood and West Hollywood, Burn 60 Studios, for the past 3 years. I have learned so much and continue to.

I want to help people reach their health and wellness goals and by doing so help society be happier and healthier. However, how this will exactly manifest itself is still in the works.
