I began my journey with Crossfit in early 2013 and I have been working at it ever since. I've developed such a passion for coaching since then and I decided to get my Level 1 training certification in early 2016 so that I could start applying what I've learned to help people change their lives not only physically but mentally as well. I believe you should approach every day trying to be 1% better then before, and that your dreams and goals should always be bigger than your capacity to reach them in that moment.
I am a transplant to the Augusta area thanks to my husband who retired here. I am originally from Kansas, married, three grown children and two ultra adorable granddaughters. I started my fitness journey about seven years ago finding myself overweight and with serious health problems. The more I worked out and tried new fitness regimens, the more it became a way of life for me. After becoming a professional student, I decided that I could try my hand at teaching. I've been teaching for about three years and the more I do it the more I love it!! I teach spin, group fitness and Zumba. I enjoy watching others embark on their fitness journey and encourage those with a passion to pursue teaching as it is very rewarding to see my students/participant progress!!
