Fitness and health have not always been a passion of mine, although, I have always been active and into sports, hiking, and just being outdoors. Even with years as a Swim Coach from 2009-2012 and casually "working out" with my friends...just to show off my newest gym clothes, becoming a Trainer was never on my radar.
But, after being diagnosed with Uterine Cancer in 2012, my health and my life changed. Actually, my entire mindset and how I looked at "being healthy", was completely flipped upside down.
During my treatments, surgeries and throughout the recovery process, I found my passion to live and thrive. But, I still didn't know my passion was to help others do the same yet.
In 2013, my health and body began to fully recover, and I was now in remission. I decided to start my professional career in the Fitness Industry.
Trying my hand with MLM fitness businesses first....., then went to coaching my friends and family members under-the-table, and even worked for a short period of time with special needs children and families to help them find healthy ways to achieve their goals, which was super rewarding!
Meanwhile, I graduated with my Bachelors in Communications and Biomedical Philosophy in 2014.
In 2015, I jumped full-force into the "gym-life", working my way up the corporate "fitness ladder" working as a Front Desk Gym Attendant, and earning my way to Assistant Manager, then to Operations Manager in 2016, and finally opening my own legal Coaching business at the end of 2016.
I continued to expand my knowledge and grow my passion even more while living in and all around the Pacific Northwest.
But in 2018, I had my daughter, Andersen, and moved across the country to a little city called, Rock Hill, in South Carolina. I brought my business with me, but had to start over with new clients, networking and new coaching connections.
Ultimately, I knew it all came down to results. People want results. But what I noticed so many trainers were doing, was NOT what I found to be the determining factor in long-term success. To change someone's life, you have to be able to help them change their mindset on what is possible.
With no real connections in my new hometown, I had to turn to the World Wide Web and try to grow from there.
So in 2019, I created my website (that you're on right now), and it went live!
I started my own fitness apparel brand and sold out within 2 weeks! I started hosting daily LIVE workouts both in-person and online. I opened several online support groups for my current clients to connect and have an active platform to share their goals, struggles, photos, recipes, get questions answered and to feel supported!
I even tried my hand in creating a weekly Health & Wellness podcast. With COVID-19 just hitting the news and spreading worldwide, I knew I could still help people with my proven process.
By June 2020, I reached my own personal goal of having helped 4,500 clients, globally.
Currently in the process of creating my Fitness and Nutrition App, expected to be available January 2022!
