Your body was built to move and nothing good comes out of a sedentary lifestyle.  Health is the way you live every day.  The way you exercise, eat, and think not only can increase your days on this earth, but your enjoyment of life.  Live well!

Client Base
I enjoy working with a variety of clients from the athlete working to improve his or her performance to the weekend warrior working to get in shape.  I also enjoy working with clients with special needs including scoliosis, parkinson’s and arthritis.  Having gained over 80 pounds with my first child, I know the road to optimal health is not easy, but it is worth it!  It is my privilege to help clients experience success with their fitness goals.

Exercise should be fun and improve your quality of life.  For some, this means changing your body composition.  For others, it is improving your functioning in everyday activities.  For everyone though, it means moving better.  That is the foundation on which you can work toward your other goals.  I want to introduce my clients to new forms of exercise so that they become inspired to continue on their own.  I want to help them improve their body awareness and control.  And in this process, I want to teach them how they can exercise and move in the real world safely and healthfully.

Client Base
I have worked with everyone from newly released physical therapy and cardiopulmonary disease patients to competitive athletes.  These people have ranged in age from pre-teens to individuals in their 80s.

Personal Interests

I have always loved the outdoors.  Hiking, rock climbing, and mountaineering are some of my favorite ways to exercise.  Additionally, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, watching movies, and woodworking.
