My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. ~ Maya Angelou
I am a fitness and wellness coach and a personal trainer, I was born and raised in Jersey City, NJ., migrated to Fresno, CA at the age of 25 (that was 32 years ago).
I love challenging people to tap into their inner greatness, so that they can accomplish extraordinary results and a sense of belonging to make THEIR impact in the world. I am the dog mom of Titus (My Welsh Terrier) and when you meet me, I will probably be wearing a pair of Chuck Taylors LOL!
I am a recovering perfectionist! I have learned over the years that the obsession of being the best and the "have it all together girl" often ended up sabotaging my efforts to get anything done! I am learning to do as mentor Todd Durkin says "READY, FIRE, AIM" - Get your mind right, Get something going, Get in you flow, trust the process, build a tribe!
I believe that mindset and fitness should go hand-in-hand and that optimum wellness is directly relative to balance in the body, mind, and spirit.
I knew that I was capable of more and I yearned to develop the discipline to embrace the changes I needed in order to be the person I was put on this earth for, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
As a competitive pro bodybuilder, a former athlete, basketball, track, and cheerleader, as well as an office executive, a wife (now divorced) I have learned from experiences.. I struggled with health issues, I had failures, victories, lessons (on going) that propel me to my work that I am passionate about today.
