About Me

I have been a Certified Fitness Trainer for 7yrs. I am Boot Camp and group certified Fitness Instructor, Zumba Instructor, Nursing major, train in body building, and integrate in my training, functional (myofascial), and posture corrective exercises. I have participated in 5k and 10k, marathons. My athletic history involves cheerleading, softball, basketball, running, and outdoor activities.

I do have limitations, as we all do, they may slow me down, but not stop me from achieving my goals. Due to past injuries, (which I will elaborate on) I continue to educate myself on what I can do to help improve my overall health and fitness level.

As for some of my challenges, in 2001 was involved in a motor vehicle accident, which left me with a C1,C2 facture to my cervical spine, 6 injured disk, two fractures to my pelvis, and many other injuries. The broken neck and pelvis was the hardest to overcome. I had limited range of motion in my neck, migraines, many restless nights, as I found it hard to comfort my neck. My fracture is right below my brain stem and I am blessed it didn’t break all the way, as I would not have survived. My pelvis fracture was to my sacrum and pubis ramus. One hurt when I sat, the other when I walked. It took me a good 3years to completely heal, although 10years later, I still live with pain and daily have to treat my neck.

Starting over was hard, due to my weight lifting restrictions, I lost all muscle tone and had to start fresh. This was very discouraging to me, since I previously had reached my fitness goals after giving birth to three wonderful children!

In conclusion, If I could do any of this over, I wouldn’t change a thing! These challenges have made me stronger and I can reach others that some trainers cannot. It has allowed me to be the trainer that I am and there is no better. If I can do it, so can you! Let me help You! I specialize in goal setting, proper nutrition, fitness and body fat . I have trained and helped youth, elderly, overweight, underweight, fit, unfit, injured and helped to prevent injuries.

The time is now, and unfortunately, it does not come back! A new year is approaching, your health and wellbeing is worth it!!

Quotes I enjoy….
Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.
Edward Stanley, Earl of Derby (1826-93), British statesman.
We do not stop exercising because we grow old - we grow old because we stop exercising.
Dr. Kenneth Cooper, Cooper Institute.

Giving thanks..
I would like to say thank you to my family, God, and friends for always being there for me, the physical and emotional challenges of my past, so I may benefit others , and to each and every one of my clients, you have given so much back to me.
