“If you told me 15 years ago that I would be where I am today, I would have called you crazy.  Growing up, I didn’t workout (I was an avid horseback rider and spent all my free time at the barn… but not a typical workout guru).  I didn’t eat well (bacon pizza & double cheeseburgers were my weekly staple food). Once I got to college, I started running and training for a half marathon and knew I needed to get my diet in check if I wanted to have the energy to train hard. It wasn’t until after my wedding that I was  introduced to CrossFit… it was then that my life changed and I never looked back! CrossFit became so much more than a way to get in shape… It was the gateway to a new life! It fueled a new love & passion for health and fitness and I want to use that to help others!

From there, I dedicated all my free time to learning anything & everything I could about health & fitness.  Learning from two-time winner of the World MMA Trainer of the Year Award, Mike Dolce, I began living the life of “earth grown nutrients”.  

I am a new mom, so having the right nutrition to fuel my long days (and nights) is critical.  I have never felt better and I want you to feel the same — be the best you can feel!”
